From one of Americas leading authorities on juvenile violence comes a groundbreaking investigation of the explosion of violent behavior in girls
With Lost Boys, James Garbarino became our foremost explicator of violent behavior in boys. Now he turns his attention to its increasing incidence in girls. Twenty-five years ago, ten boys were arrested for assault for every one girl. Now that ratio is four-to-one and dropping. Combining clinical experience with incisive analyses of social trends, Garbarino traces the factorsmany of them essentially positivebehind the epidemic: girls increased participation in sports and greater comfort with their physicality, but also their lack of training in handling aggression. See Jane Hit goes beyond diagnosing the problem to outline a clear-eyed, compassionate solution.
James Garbarino, Ph.D., is Co-Director of the Family Life Development Center and Professor of Human Development at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
James Garbarino is always cutting edge. . . . See Jane Hit is consciousness- raising in the truest sense of the word. (Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia)[An] evenhanded but eye-opening book. (Publishers Weekly)
