Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although the subject matter of Scouts Honor will put some readers off, it deserves to be read. By focusing on the molesters-rather than their victims-the book offers an eye-opening look at exactly how child molesters operate and how society has let them get away with it. According to Boyle, who carefully researched the history of the Boy Scouts and conducted interviews with eight former scout leaders who molested boys, the scouting institution has served as a magnet for pedophiles since it inception. Although the Boy Scouts has recently taken effective steps to combat this problem, Boyle asserts that the best protection remains ``a family life that is supportive and emotionally sound so that a child does not seek attention and affection elsewhere.'' Recommended for public libraries.-January Adams, ODSI Research Lib., Raritan, N.J.
