Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Medical Association
The book provides easy-to-understand, no-nonsense statistics, demographics, and epidemiologic information, simple and accurate definitions of terms and concepts, a description of individual reactions to violence, and a lay explanation of the psychological dynamics of victims and perpetrators.
Booknews
For average Americans and those in professional fields confronting violence and its consequences, Gellert (medicine, George Washington U.) provides a cogent analysis of all its forms--physical, sexual, and emotional--as a preventable public health issue. After a foreword by Oklahoma's Governor Keating, the author proceeds to the grim statistics confirming that America is more violent than other societies: against children, domestic partners, the elderly, strangers, with guns, and in the schools; only the suicide rate is comparable to other nations. Includes extensive resource lists, promising prevention strategies, and suggestions for further reading. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
