Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Cynthia L. Blinn
Hong's Family Abuse, of Enslow's Issues in Focus series, provides a comprehensive introduction to the nature and depth of family abuses, with a focus on "child maltreatment and domestic violence." Hong strives to educate her readers to recognize and combat all forms of family abuse (physical, sexual, and emotional abuses, and neglect) and acknowledges that victims may be children, siblings, parents, or elders. Illustrating her points through case studies, including stories of public figures, Hong brings issues to life. Her proactive stance includes a chapter on society's role, which recognizes "how public responses can help or hurt victims of mistreatment." Urging her readers to action, she states that "public intolerance of family abuse is the key to prevention and intervention." The graphic descriptions of domestic violence include passages such as "choking, stabbing, burning, [or] attempting to drown." Both titles are informative, but the tone, style, and layout of Reinert's, an Enslow Teen Issues title, target a younger audience. Reinert addresses legal issues and specific advice for recognizing and stopping sexual abuse, beyond Hong's scope. He makes generalizations about male abusers using their size as a threat while women play on feelings, whereas Hong allows that anyone might abuse for any reason. Reinert's extensive state-by-state resource listing leaves me with concern for readers whose states have no listing. Both acknowledge some abuses are insidious, and to-date-unwitting victims might encounter initial recognition on the pages of either text. If you must choose, Hong provides a broader range of information, while Reinert focuses on sexual abuse and incest. Index. Source Notes. Further Reading. Note: This review was written and published to address two titles: Family Abuse: A National Epidemic, and Sexual Abuse and Incest. VOYA Codes: 4Q 2P M J (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8 and Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9).
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up--It is difficult to imagine a more confusing presentation. Readers are bombarded throughout with definitions, examples, and facts that are unclear and internally inconsistent with the subject matter. Reinert seems unable to stick to the topics as outlined, providing haphazard footnotes and neglecting to define the terminology he uses. He also makes certain unsupported assertions that prompt readers to question his goals. For instance, the author states, "Police officers know that Hispanic and African cultures have different social rules about touch between adults and children, but they also know there are some forms of touch that are clearly not acceptable." What is he saying? Many statements need further clarification if readers are to understand the topic and where the author is coming from. Margaret Hyde and Elizabeth Forsyth's The Sexual Abuse of Children and Adolescents (Millbrook, 1997) and Deborah Miller and Pat Kelly's Coping with Incest (Rosen, 1995) are far better books on this topic.--Melissa Gross, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
