Editorial Reviews


"A significant advance in the area of school violence."--PsyCRITIQUES

"Provides relevant information for a wide audience, including researchers, policy makers, practitioners, educators, and families."--Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy

"Benbenishty and Astor have done a marvelous job in introducing the reality of school violence in Israeli schools and the contextual factors associated with students violence victimization using nationally representative data. Despite the complicated statistical procedures they have used, the results are presented without technical jargon, which makes this book useful and attractive not only for researchers but also for policy makers and practitioners who care about the safety of our students. This book is a fine example of how a comparative study of school violence using quantitative methods should be carried out, and more studies of this kind are strongly needed to enhance our understanding of school violence around the world."--American Journal of Education

"Benbenishty and Astor make an extremely important and specific contribution to the school violence literature by demonstrating the importance and complexity of school contextual effects. Perhaps the larger contributions of this book, however, are more general.[The authors] provide a blueprint of how to operationalize and execute a complex, ecologically-derived program of research. Their data and analyses allowed for full descriptions of the heterogeneity of victimization experiences within persons, while at the same time capturing the broader influence of within and between school contextual processes."--Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
