I know, I know. This is not a new book! But it is one a colleague recently recommended, and it is timely given the federal government’s recent attention toward our universities’ rape culture and the lawsuit just filed by the Wesleyan student against a fraternity for her rape. We have an epidemic of campus rape, and a need for effective solutions, including the best legal deterrents. One element is how to educate the victims about impending danger before it happens, which The Gift of Fear does. It should be on everyone’s reading list, but most especially high school graduates heading to college.
