This collection of essays is comprehensive and written by a number of leaders in the field. The book deserves its place on the shelf, even in this crowded field. * Psychiatric Services * I think this is one of the best textbooks I have read. It should be required reading in every residency program. I urge every practicing psychiatrist to spend some time with this book: think of it as a Red Cross lifesaving program. The textbook will also be useful to people who study substance abuse, aging, school safety, and many other problems that intersect with violence. * The journal of Nervous and Mental Disease * This is an edited book that provides good overviews of important topics in the broad field of psychiatric aspects of violence. The highly respected editors chose experienced and expert chapter authors. The organization is clear and consistent, with key points bulleted at the end of each chapter. * William H. Reid, MD, MPH, Journal of Psychiatric Practice *
