Professor of Sociology Louis Hicks was the lead editor of “The Civilian Lives of U.S. Veterans: Issues and Identities” which received a positive review from Choice Reviews.
“Although veterans often feature in highly dramatic news stories about active shooter events, PTSD, homelessness, or VA healthcare inadequacies, surprisingly few texts of academic caliber focus on current issues surrounding veterans. A noticeable exception is this two-volume set edited by Hicks (St. Mary’s College of Maryland), Weiss (Univ. of Southern California), and Coll (Texas State Univ.), which offers 30 articles on an array of social topics ranging from higher education, employment, families, and healthcare to more timely issues of media portrayal, suicide, immigrants, LGBT and women veterans, and the Department of Defense’s Transition Assistance Program,” the review states.
J. M. Enomoto, an independent scholar, said the book is “a fantastic read!”
