"Readers from other disciplines, who have an interest in interpersonal violence as it occurs in public spaces, would be drawn to other chapters and would be equally intrigued.  In essence, this handbook has a broad readership and ably meets its goal of 'summarizing the state of current knowledge and charting the course for future research.'" —CANADIAN PSYCHOLOGY
