Domestic Violence

by Joe Layden

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8Two series entries that provide background information on recent major news stories and hot report topics. Goldish gives an account of politics and government in Haiti from Columbus's landing in 1492 to President Aristide's reinstatement on October 15, 1994. Layden looks at family violence, providing psychological profiles of batterers and victims and describing the progress being made to protect spouses, children, and the elderly from abuse. A photograph of O.J. Simpson in court adds to the currency of this title. The books are readable, detailed, and supplemented with charts, graphs, and full-color and black-and-white photographs and reproductions.Eunice Weech, M.L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
