Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Medical Association
Anyone interested in understanding the physical and psychological toll that violence takes on the millions of college students in the United States would do well to look here first.
Although many still view the campus as an aerie divorced from the everyday world or as the "ivory tower," real life in many forms, including violence, often intrudes. Here, 17 essays by legal experts, public administrators, consultants, and scholars assess the problems and advocate methods and strategies for eliminating violence in that milieu. Topics include a profile of students coming to campus, heterosexism and campus violence, and the legal response to violence on campus. Intended to help student affairs and academic administrators develop strategies to cope with violence on campus. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
