This book explores the ways in which ordinary people deal with both sexual and physical danger in everyday life. Elizabeth Stanko has talked with women and men in Britain and the United States, from a variety of backgrounds and age groups. They share with her their experiences, fears about personal danger - from neighbours, strangers and the people with whom they live - and the precautions they take to protect themselves. Most of us have learned, consciously and unconsciously, ways to manage violence and negotiate danger. How we do so, from childhood to old age, how the police strategize and act, how women and men experience violence - all are covered by Elizabeth Stanko in this investigation of what personal safety really means to us.
