Sugar and spice and no longer nice: how we can stop girls' violence
Until recently, it was assumed that boys were the primary, if not exclusive, perpetrators of violence. Boys are still primary, but things are changing. There has been a tremendous statistical increase in the incidence of physical violence generated by pubescent and teenage girls, both against one another and occasionally exploding against the rest of the world. This violence will not be confined, as many think, to poor inner-city girls but will reach (just as it did with boys) all kinds of suburban, rural, and urban communities across a broad spectrum of demographics.
"Sugar and Spice and No Longer Nice" is a groundbreaking book that offers parents and teachers a primer for understanding and preventing the increasing incidents of physical violence--hazing, brutality, fighting, weapons, murder--by young girls. Written by Drs. Deborah Prothrow-Stith and Howard R. Spivak--the renowned Harvard- and Tufts-based experts on preventing youth violence--this important book offers a plan to help our daughters become strong, confident, powerful, and independent young women "without being violent."
The book is well grounded in scientific data and filled with illustrative examples of girls' real-life stories of violence. The stories cover a range of issues and risk factors that focus on girls' violent and aggressive behavior. "Sugar and Spice and No Longer Nice" offers a plan for creating a girl-oriented approach to preventing violence and answers such questions as How is the violent behavior of girls different from that of boys?What can parents do to prevent aggressive behavior in girls?What can schools and educators do to prevent violent behavior?What can communities do to address the issue of violence and girls?Is it possible to reverse this trend?
"Sugar and Spice and No Longer Nice" is a call to action for changing our attitudes, improving our parenting skills, confronting our cultural norms and media images, and taking responsibility for all our children.

Sugar and spice and no longer nice: how we can stop girls' violenceUser Review - Book Verdict
The evidence presented by Prothrow-Stith (public health, Harvard Univ. Sch. of Adolescent Medicine) and Spivak (pediatrics & community health, Tufts Univ. Sch. of Medicine) is shocking: over the past ten years, while rates of violent crime have dropped for boys, girls now account for 28 percent of all juvenile violent crime arrests. Why the change? As the authors see it, the media's feminization of the superhero (see Power Rangers , Kill Bill , and Xena: Warrior Princess ) has legitimized violence as the answer to any problem and provided poor role models for girls being raised in at-risk environments. The authors' excellent ideas, especially the tips on the ART parenting model and what to do about bullying, reducing school violence, and protecting girls from courting violence, are worthy of a wide audience. The "Good Boyfriend/Bad Boyfriend List" should be mandatory reading for any parent, teacher, school administrator, or policymaker who cares about our youngest generation. Highly recommended for public libraries or any library with a special collection emphasizing youth, crime, public health, or women's studies.-Cathy Carpenter, Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib., Atlanta
