“I thought about Malcolm’s assertion more than once as I read Martha Elliott’s excellent new book,  The Man in the Monster: An Intimate Portrait of a Serial Killer. As its title indicates, the book explores the gruesome misdeeds of a murderer (and rapist), but it is also an extended reflection on how and why one might write about, and even befriend, such people. On both counts, it is an admirable success.” — The National Book Review  “Sturdily written and well researched…the book will appeal to those curious about why killers kill, and those who can stomach what they learn.”- Boston Globe  “A disturbing and multifaceted exposé of both a ruthless killer and the sympathetic, merciful journalist at odds with his capital fate.”-  Kirkus  “A fascinating, in-depth analysis for true-crime buffs, sociologists, and others grappling with nearly impossible-to-comprehend actions and their consequences.”- Booklist 'This should be a welcomed volume to both general readers and criminal justice professionals.”-  Library Journal The Man in the Monster is arresting at every turn.”- Bookpage “Elliott’s harrowing story pulls off something brilliant and new. Elliott peered into the mind of a serial killer by becoming his friend. A narrative that is riveting, honest, and devastating.' - Jack Hitt, author of Bunch of Amateurs: A Search for the American Character   “Martha Elliott takes us inside the mind of serial killer and rapist Michael Ross. Elliott spent ten years getting to know the man behind the monster, and the pace of her book is as fast and merciless as a thriller.' - Rebecca Tinsley, author of When Stars Fall to Earth  'Martha Elliott has done something no other journalist has done--she devoted ten years getting to know a serial killer, giving the reader a rare glimpse into the mind of a man, a 'monster,' who killed eight women. No matter what your views are on capital punishment or mental illness, this will be a thought-provoking read. You won't want to put it down.'-Steven Greenhouse, author of The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for American Workers    “Martha Elliot has written a commanding book about a death row inmate she met as a journalist and talked with at least once a week for ten year…When you read this book, I think you will be overwhelmed as I was and find that Martha Elliot has written a book that makes us look seriously at capital punishment. This is a great read and a must read and I urge it for people in every generation.”-Charles J. Ogletree, Jr., Jesse Climenko Professor of Law; Founding & Executive Director, The Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice 'Martha Elliott provides us with a rare close-up of the mind behind a serial killer already tried and facing the death penalty. Her meticulous and dispassionate reporting pries open the story behind the series of repulsive crimes the killer has committed against his vulnerable victims. A normal college graduate with girlfriends and, at the same time, an obsessive, demented man stalking young women, the killer reveals himself to the reporter as the complex story of childhood traumas and mental illness unfold. The book is a highly readable contribution both to the debate about capital punishment and the criminal justice system, and, at the same time, journalism as compelling drama.'-Joan Konner, Dean Emerita, Columbia Graduate School of Journalism

Working with Latino Youth

The Latino population in America is expanding at a rapid rate. Currently, Latinos represent more than 11 percent of the total U.S. population, and of that number, about 36 percent are children below the age of 18. Faced with tremendous pressure to assimilate into the American culture, many of these youths experience high rates of school failure, substance abuse, and other social problems. This makes the demand for culturally responsive intervention services for young Latinos greater than ever before. Working with Latino Youth offers counselors, teachers, social workers, therapists, and other professionals-no matter what their level of experience or cultural background-an accessible and practical guide for working effectively with Latino children and adolescents. This vital resource, which integrates development, culture, and psychological intervention, helps meet the challenge of addressing an array of culturally specific problems such as assimilation, discrimination, scholastic failure, pregnancy, substance abuse, and delinquency. The authors, Joan D. Koss-Chioino and Luis A. Vargas, present a dynamic new model for working with Latino youth that considers the individual within the context of their families, their communities, and their culture. To better understand how Latino children and adolescents are so profoundly influenced within the context of various settings, the authors offer a comprehensive examination of the four contextual levels: the microsystem level of family, the mesosystem and exosystem level of school and community, and the macrosystem level of cultural practices. Koss-Chioino and Vargas also present a wealth of research material and illustrative case studiesthat clearly demonstrate how to create treatment strategies that are culturally responsive and effective. Working with Latino Youth also addresses the critical issue of serving Latino children and adolescents in an era when public health budgets are shrinking and mental hea
