"Unsafe in the Ivory Tower is a major contribution at multiple levels. It advances the body of knowledge and strengthens the empirical rigor in a vital area of research. The book will also serve as a critical policy resource for colleges and universities who are tasked with providing environments for safe living and learning by our nation’s young women. Its finest contribution, however, will be evidenced in the lives of women across this country whose experience of higher education may be safer and unstained by exposure to sexual violence."
"Thought provoking....Some of the most comprehensive, evidence-based research on campus violence against women, with a refreshing look at potential strategies. With eye-opening, hard scientific data, this book answers most of the quintessential questions and will no doubt play a pivotal role in future research and prevention."
Unsafe in the Ivory Tower is truly a comprehensive overview and analysis of sexual victimization. It is theoretically grounded and provides an extensive and critical review of sexual victimization research, both within and beyond the ivory tower.
"While there is not a lack of books and articles available that discuss sexual victimization, thisparticular text provides a valuable contribution to the literature as it focuses on an often ignored victim of this offense."
"Based on rigorous survey research that meets the highest scientific standards, this timely book challenges the notion that colleges are "ivory towers" or peaceful sanctuaries from the "real world." Fisher, Daigle, and Cullen make it completely clear that a substantial number of women on college campuses experience serious harms that would fit most states' definitions of felony rape or sexual assault. This book is mandatory reading for anyone seeking a rich, empirically informed understanding of one of society's most compelling social problems."
Too specific a topic for an entire course, but a helpful companion reader.
