Editorial Reviews


"Children in Danger is a triumph of compassionate scholarship, a lucid application of state-of-the-art trauma research to the challenges faced by children growing up in our urban battle fields." --San Francisco Chronicle

"A stunning, must-read book for anyone interested in how community violence affects children's and teacher's development. Even better, it's a road map for school administrators and teachers on what they can do to help these children deal with the chronic violence in their lives." --Bill Harris, founder, KidsPac, a political action committee for children

"This valuable book offers insight and guidance to the professional who must help children cope with the cruel challenge of violence and death in their daily lives." --Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University

"[Children in Danger] is such a compelling account of the ways in which children are affected by living in communities where danger and violence are a way of life, that one hopes it will be read by policymakers at all levels of government who are concerned about the fate of an ever-growing number of children in our society." --Contemporary Psychology

Format: Paperback
Children in Danger is a good book to read. It is very interesting and it talks about children who saw someone get hurt.These children are the ages of two and up. They been in the middle of accidents and around them.I really like this book because it talks about children that are in danger and it explains there problem that they have. Who they saw get hurt. I didnt like that the children were tramitized and they had to go through what happend.

I feel like this book is a good book for everyone to read because it was very interesting. It caught my attention and it inspired me to keep reading the book. It made me feel good that the children were the ones who told some of the story. This is a good book.

So many of our children experience violence in their homes and communities. I've heard James Garbarino speak several times and he does have a pulse on what is happening and ideas on what we can do about it. For anyone working with youth, buy the book, read it, and then do something more to help your own community.
