Just a quickie today as I am trying to get ready for a (slightly anxiety-provoking) trip to  South Carolina tomorrow. Assuming Irene gives me a break, I’ll be back in time for the weekend–and my upcoming vacation (but more on that next week). In the meantime, if you have the ability to access it, JAMA devoted an entire issue to Violence and Human Rights earlier this month. See a selection of the available articles after the jump. Find links to all the abstracts here.
