    Like any writing project, the ideas in this book have been incubating for a number of years. Over those years, we have been informed by each others’ work on various other projects and by our conversations with each other. Our ideas have also been shaped by the work and contributions of many others who are far too numerous to begin to call out. For the senior author, the seeds of this book were planted during collaborative curriculum planning with colleagues at Virginia Commonwealth University and enriched, particularly, by her several years of cherished collaboration with Stephen Gilson, who is now on the faculty at the University of Maine. We are grateful to Stephen for his contributions to our understanding of biological contributions to human behavior and his keen sense of social justice. Marcia Harrigan expresses her gratitude to Drs. Kia Bentley, Janice Berry-Edwards, Rosemary Farmer, and Joe Walsh for the gracious sharing of their own scholarship and for their suggestions that helped to shape her ideas.

    We are grateful to Dean Frank Baskind at Virginia Commonwealth University and Professor Virginia David, Chair of the Department of Social Work at Nazareth College, for supporting us in all of our endeavors. The senior author is grateful to Dean Baskind and her colleagues at Virginia Commonwealth University for the opportunity to be on research leave in the final weeks of completing the book. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the library staffs at Virginia Commonwealth University and Nazareth College, recognizing that their advancements in making materials electronically accessible lightened our load and gave us more snippets of time to connect with our families.

    We are lucky to be working again with the folks at Sage. Art Pomponio was a cheerleader in the early stages of bringing our incubating ideas into written form, and Kassie Graves has been a very competent, focused, yet gentle shepherd through the last stages of turning a once unwieldy manuscript into a book. At a key point, Jerry Westby greased the wheels. Veronica Novak was a constant throughout the long months and diligently did her part to keep the project moving. When the drafting and redrafting finally came to an end, Sarah Quesenberry worked the magic of turning words into a book. We were pleased to have Barbara Coster's competent copyediting assistance once again. There are many others at Sage who work behind the scenes doing crucial tasks that are invisible to authors. We sense your presence and appreciate all that you do.

    We are also grateful for the support and encouragement of students, family, and colleagues. They enrich our lives and provide us with protective webs of connectedness. Chuck, thank you for waiting patiently weekend after weekend for Marcia to be (really) finished with her chapters. Chuck and Hutch, thank you for your good humor while assisting us with the various computer glitches.

    Finally, we are grateful to the following reviewers who read an earlier draft of the book and provided helpful feedback:

  • Glossary

    • Absolute poverty: A term used to describe poverty in economic terms. Measures of absolute poverty utilize formulas that take into account monetary assets only. It is not affected by changing norms and needs within a society. An example of this approach is Molly Orshansky's economy food plan.
    • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS): A syndrome that occurs when the HIV infection has severely damaged the immune system, making the person vulnerable to becoming very ill or dying from a wide range of diseases or infections that others can fight off.
    • Adipocytes: Cells within the body that store fat.
    • Adiponectin: A protein produced by fat cells that blocks production of blood glucose in the liver and increases muscle activity to make energy.
    • Adolescent-limited group of violent offenders: A large group of people who engage in aggressive and violent behavior only during adolescence.
    • Afrocentric perspective: A cultural perspective with principles that embrace a collectivist worldview and spiritual base. The Afrocentric perspective suggests that violation of these fundamental principles (e.g., spiritual alienation and social isolation) may help to explain a community's substance abuse behavior.
    • Amygdala: A brain structure that is responsible for assigning “emotional value” to an event. The amygdala is the filter that responds to threatening stimuli and puts the body on high alert if danger is assessed, charging the body with action. The amygdala, in some cases, may become overstimulated by innocuous stimuli that mimic an original traumatic event but yet which are not a current threat.
    • Antecedent factors: In research on risk and protection, those risk or protective factors that came before the troublesome situation.
    • Antiretroviral therapy (ART): Treatment with drugs that inhibit the ability of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) to multiply in the body.
