Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 610. These two offerings in the excellent Overview Series focus on difficult topics, fraught with emotionalism and few easy answers. The authors treat their subjects evenhandedly, consistently pointing out the stark reasons for parental and police behavior. Anderson spends a great deal of time linking the stress and danger of the job as well as simple human foibles to some police officers' violent behavior, and Ito makes similar analogies of stress and a parent's own childhood to child abuse. Neither author condones the behavior, however, both seeking changes in individuals and society to curb the violence. Each title is researched carefully, combining major background sources with newspaper and popular journal articles into an accessible, readable examination of the issues. Although this accuracy appeals to the demands of teachers and librarians for sound information, the books' design--single columns of text, plenty of white space, and black-and-white photos and cartoons--caters to teens' penchant for choosing quick, easy reads. Go along with the ruse; these are excellent choices for middle-and high-school/public library collections. --Frances Bradburn"
