See Jane Hit, by James Garbarino

Interesting look at female violence. Garbarino also wrote Lost Boys, and while I thought See Jane Hit was a good book, it felt a little repetitive to me. Social toxicity is his catch phrase, and it's hard to deny that our culture has become desensitised to violence.
Some depressing case studies and frightening statistics, but there wasn't anything in the book that surprised me. I guess it might be the kind of book where if you're bothering to read it, you're probably predisposed to agree with the author that there is an issue at hand.
