This volume suffers from a series of problems; it does not appear to be aimed at a particular audience. Consequently it is not, in its entirety, suitable for any. There are a number of duplications, leading to the impression that there was little, if any, editorial pulling together of the articles. The quality of the articles varies, with the low point being very low, eg, the statement that, "The stimulant drugs are thought to have a direct effect on that part of the brain referred to as the central nervous system (CNS)."
On the other hand, a review of research design by De Long is an excellent overview for nonresearchers. The article by Allen and Safer reviewing their own and other work on the long-term effect of stimulant drugs is also of value.
Weithorn provides an excellent review of children's rights, a field that is rapidly evolving.
