A new book by James Garbarino '68, a well-known authority on violence in boys, examines the increase in violent behavior by girls.

See Jane Hit: Why Girls Are Growing More Violent and What Can Be Done About It was published in February of 2006 by Penguin Press. The publishers state, "Just 10 years ago, almost 10 boys were arrested for assault for every girl. Now the ratio is four to one, and it's dropping rapidly. What's going on with American girls? See Jane Hit is the first big-picture answer to this crucial question, a groundbreaking examination of this hidden epidemic by one of America's most respected authorities on juvenile violent aggression."

Garbarino is the Maude C. Clarke Chair in Humanistic Psychology at Loyola University in Chicago. He has appeared frequently on nationally broadcast news and information programs including "Nightline," PBS's "NewsHour," "Larry King Live," "Meet the Press," "The Today Show," National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" and many more. He is the author of numerous books about adolescent development, including And Words Can Hurt Forever: How To Protect Adolescents from Bullying, Harassment, and Emotional Violence; Parents Under Siege: Why You Are The Solution, Not The Problem, In Your Child's Life; Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them; and Raising Children In A Socially Toxic Environment. Garbarino has been awarded both an Alumni Citation (1990) and an honorary degree (1995) from St. Lawrence for his career achievements.
