Reviews

This extraordinary book situates campus sexual assault in context. It teaches us how any particular sexual encounter is shaped as much by the people involved as it is by the history and prior education of the participants, by economic inequality, by the physical and social geography in which they are living. All of us with a responsibility for creating the campus spaces that can generate--or harm--health need to read this book.--Sandro Galea, Dean and Robert A. Knox Professor, School of Public Health, Boston University
Hirsch and Khan's systematic public health approach to campus sexual assault not only urges empathic action but also outlines possible solutions to this communal problem. A timely and persuasive contribution to today's national conversation. A must-read!--Claire E. Sterk, president and Charles Howard Candler Professor of Public Health, Emory University
Timely, authentic, and revolutionary.--J. Dennis Fortenberry, Donald Orr Professor of Adolescent Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine
Incisive....This detailed, practical inquiry should be mandatory reading for college administrators and parents of college-age children.
Excellent....Absolutely essential reading to prepare teens for what they'll encounter in college on both the social and sexual fronts.
A readable and thought-provoking work on a topic of concern on college campuses. The SHIFT project generated many academic publications, but this book successfully reaches a general audience, specifically students, parents, and policymakers.--Library Journal (starred review)
Profoundly eye-opening....Hirsch and Khan present a novel model for explaining and responding to campus sexual assault.--Claire M. Renzetti
A clear, intersectional picture of the forces breeding a campus culture that bulldozes consent, as well as a path forward that emphasizes empathy, mutual respect, and bodily autonomy.--Adrienne Westenfeld
