Violence and Hate in the Family and Neighborhood: New Perspectives, Policy and Programs.
Johnston, Janet R., Ed.
There is accumulating research in diverse areas about the social conditions that are likely to promote violent environments, and the effects of these environments upon the development of children and youth. This series of papers on violence and hate traces abusive relationships through childhood and into adulthood, suggesting how these relationships might be linked and highlighting the intergenerational legacy of violence. Each paper deals with definitional issues, incidence rates and the problems of collecting valid estimates, research findings about associated factors and effects on victims, and current theories that explain each type of violence. Also discussed are overall approaches to intervention and specific programs that can be implemented. The seven papers are: (1)"Violence and Hate in the Family and Neighborhood: An Overview" (Kristan Glasgow and others); (2) "The Physical and Sexual Abuse of Children" (Jeanne Barr and others); (3) "Gangs and Their Violence" (Diana Chuang and others); (4) "Toward an Understanding of Hate Crimes" (Cory Booker and others); (5) "Intimacy and Sexual Violence: Date Rape and Marital Rape" (Howard Chow); (6) "Intimacy and Violence: Abuse in Marriage, Dating, and Cohabitation" (Linh Cao); and (7) "The Intergenerational Legacy of Family Violence: A Critical Review and Reformulation." References are included with chapters 2-7. (TJQ)
