Praise

Jane Katch is a gutsy teacher and she has written a fascinating book about the obsessions and fears of boys in elementary school. Under Deadman’s Skin makes it clear why school boards and politicians cannot legislate boy violence away. We all need to understand boys the way Jane Katch does. –Michael Thompson, Ph.D., author of Raising Cain and coauthor of Speaking of Boys

“Like Vivian Paley before her, Jane Katch takes us inside the minds and hearts of young children. She suspends judgement and her own fears to walk alongside her young students.” –James Garbarino, author of Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them

“[Katch] tackles many of the most perplexing questions about classroom violence: Do violent movies make violent kids? Are boys more violent than girls? And how does the act of exclusion lead to a cycle of violence?” —New Orleans Times-Picayune
