"A useful compendium of what we know' about child maltreatment and what it will take to know more....Unlike many edited volumes, this book coheres well as a unit. This adds importantly to its usefulness for the field, and it is useful. It can serve as a primer and reference volume for anyone contemplating longitudinal research on child maltreatment, which should include anyone contemplating research on child maltreatment."--James Garbarino in Child & Family Behavior Therapy
