From the Publisher"Provides a comprehensive overview...the authors are stars in the risk/resilience field...a necessary read for researchers, students, and practitioners." Psychological Medicine
"This is a remarkable book. The editor, Suniya Luthar, deserves high praise for the monumental task she has accomplished in providing a balance between essays that deal with conceptual and methodological issues, reviews of empircal work, and intervention programs designed to promote resilience. The excellent commentaries on biologic and genetic influences, and the guidelines for future research, policy and practice are bound to inspire both graduate students and 'seasoned' professionals in child development, developmental psychology, child psychology, and social work." Emmy E. Werner, senior author of "Overcoming the Odds and Journeys from Childhood to Midlife: Risk, Resilience and Recovery"
"Superbly edited by Suniya Luthar...resilience has reached a new level of clarity and sophistication...each empirical finding supports a larger concept, and no concept — no matter how small — is made in the absence of solid research backing." American Journal of Psychiatry
