Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 10-12-- A thorough discussion of the subject for readers with some background knowledge. Specific studies and theories are presented; information is footnoted, and complete citations are appended. Chapters are grouped into three broad categories: causes, consequences, and coping with/preventing stress. Each begins with a true situation that is often taken from current periodicals. Black-and-white photographs, wide margins, and varied type styles combine with relevant tables and an appropriate writing style to create a book that is as easy to read as it is to scan for information. A useful index, a list of organizations, and books for further reading are also included. Whether researching the topic for personal reasons or for a school assignment, readers will welcome this book. --Dona Weisman, Northeast Texas Library System, Garland
