Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 272-273. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1996-98197-000) is a collection of chapters by prominent researchers in child and family psychology. The overall focus of the book is on the identification and study of important mechanisms that underlie variations in children's and families' abilities to cope with common stressors such as divorce, economic disadvantage, and adolescent childbirth. In conclusion, the reviewer states that it could be said that the breadth of subject matter covered in this book is both a strength and a weakness. The broad range of theories and mechanisms presented across the chapters can be overwhelming, and although they certainly constitute an appropriate representation of the many exciting directions being taken in the relatively new area of risk and resiliency research, readers would have benefitted from the explication of an organizing framework in the Introduction to this book.
