Front Cover
This book explores the ways in which ordinary people deal with both sexual and physical danger in everyday life. Elizabeth Stanko has talked with women and men in Britain and the United States, from a variety of backgrounds and age groups. They share with her their experiences, fears about personal danger - from neighbours, strangers and the people with whom they live - and the precautions they take to protect themselves.
