A refreshing aspect of this book was the passionate tone that permeated the text. Papers such as "Examining the Impact of Violence on Ethnic Minority Youth, Their Families, and Communities: Issues for Prevention Practice" and "Science and Challenges of HIV Prevention in Diverse Communities: Sex, Culture, and Empowerment" describe interventions that were scientifically evaluated and theoretically sound. However, the chapters still conveyed a sense of the emotional backdrop that makes this field of study so rewarding. In the acknowledgments, the editors thank their ancestors for nurturance and wisdom and express a hope that their experiences will live on through their families. With this book, the authors will themselves inspire a family of researchers, practitioners, and students to take the field to new levels.
