The Handbook of Children, Culture, and Violence provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary examination of childhood violence that considers children as both consumers and perpetrators of violence, as well as victims of it. This Handbook is the first single volume to consider situations when children are responsible for violence, rather than focusing exclusively on occasions when they are victimized.

About the Author:

Nancy E. Dowd is Chesterfield Smith Professor of Law at the Fredric G. Levin College of Law at the University of Florida, and Co-Director of the Center for Children and Families at UF.  The author of In Defense of Single Parent Families (1997) and Redefining Fatherhood (2001), and a reader on feminist legal theory, she has published extensively on non-traditional families, work/family issues, civil rights, and feminist theory.

Review:

"Addresses childhood and adolescent violence from a fresh perspective:  the experiential world of the child and adolescent.  This is needed....The editors have succeeded in organizing an impressive, interdisciplinary group of contributors.  Balanced and thorough, the book should be very appealing to the intended audiences....It integrates a wide scope of material under the general topic, and by an excellent cadre of contributors." (James Howell 2005-07-06)

"By bringing together the literatures and crossing disciplinary lines, the book should have wide cross-disciplinary appeal....The key strength is the idea of an integrated approach to children and violence that includes children as consumers, victims, and perpetrators of violence....I think that any scholar working in the area of child and family violence would like a book like this one....It advances understanding of children and violence and is an excellent resource book for policy makers." (Elizabeth D. Hutchison 2005-07-06)

"...an excellent contribution to diverse fields (e.g., psychology, law, sociology)....The content is broad but appropriate in each of the three sections." (Eric F. Dubow 2005-07-06)

"A book with a unique perspective that will bring together research across several disciplines.  It′s helpful to have such a single source that provides an overview of the research on children and violence in several different contexts." (Amy Nathanson 2005-07-06)

"The Editors and Contributors to this volume are excellent.  I am especially familiar with Dr. Singer′s work, which is superb." (Brad Bushman 2005-07-06)

"The papers are well written and reflect timely information that is well documented from research, and also explore policy implications within each area." (D. S. Pierson 2006-11-27)

"Each chapter contains recommendations for legislators, policy makers, researchers, and families. This book should be on the desk, and minds, of legislators, attorneys, social workers and other mental health professionals who encounter and wish to ameliorate the effects of violence in the lives of their young constituents, clients, and patients."

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This Handbook provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary examination of childhood violence for students, scholars, and policymakers. A great many books have been published on children and violence, but the majority approach the topic from a single disciplinary perspective and most often concentrate on children as victims of violence. In contrast, this book incorporates perspectives from across disciplinary bounds - psychology and human development, commnication, family law and public policy, criminology, human services - and examines children as consumers and perpetrators of violence, as well as victims, for the broadest possible view on the impact of a culture of violence in children s lives.
