Editorial Reviews


• Offers a detailed treatment of the many facets of security, ranging from the use of design, technology, and hardware to policies establishing controls and accountability for schools' real and personal property

• Looks beyond the high-profile school shootings of recent years to include other forms of violence and safety risks

• Emphasizes the role of the human factor in security and the need to exercise care in both hiring processes and selection of contractors

• Argues that failure to consider the protection of assets as well as people can prove costly and embarrassing

"James Alan Fox, who comes from academia, and Harvey Burstein, whose background is in security management, have collaborated to provide readers with a multifaceted perspective on school security. The result is a comprehensive blueprint that stakeholders can use to plan for and deter acts of school violence."


Security Management


"Professors Fox and Burstein have teamed up to produce the most comprehensive guide to school violence and security to date. Using up-to-date evidence about the patterns, trends, and correlates of school violence, they dispel myths about school crime. They expose many of the extreme measures that are often taken in response to incidents of school crime as over-reactions, and describe more reasonable, evidence-based approaches. This book is a must-read for practitioners and policy-makers wishing to reduce school crime." (Denise C. Gottfredson, Ph.D., Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of Maryland, and author of School and Delinquency)

More About the Author

James Alan Fox is the Lipman Family Professor of Criminology, Law and Public Policy, holding a joint faculty appointment in the College of Criminal Justice and the Law, Policy and Society Program at Northeastern University. He has written 18 books, including The Will to Kill: Making Sense of Senseless Murder (Allyn & Bacon), Extreme Killing: Understanding Serial and Mass Murder (Sage) and a forthcoming title, Violence and Security on Campus: From Preschool through College (Praeger). He has published dozens of journal and magazine articles, primarily in the areas of multiple murder, youth crime, school and campus violence, workplace violence, and capital punishment. He has also published nearly 200 op-ed columns in newspapers around the country, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe and USA Today, and wrote a bi-weekly column in the Boston Herald in 2006-2007. As an authority on homicide, he frequently appears on national television news programs, including the Today Show, Meet the Press, Dateline, and 20/20, and is regularly interviewed by the press. He was profiled in a two-part cover story in USA Today, in feature stories in the New York Times and the Scientific American, as well as in other media outlets. He also served as a consulting contributor for Fox News following the 9/11 terrorist attack and as an NBC News Analyst during the DC Sniper case. Fox often gives lectures and expert testimony, including over 100 keynote or campus-wide addresses around the country, 16 appearances before the U.S. Congress, White House meetings with President and Mrs. Clinton and Vice President Gore on youth violence, private briefings to Attorney General Reno on trends in violence, and a presentation for Princess Anne of Great Britain. He served on President Clinton's advisory committee on school shootings, and a Department of Education Expert Panel on Safe, Disciplined and Drug-Free Schools. He chaired a blue ribbon panel for the city of Seattle investigating the March 2006 Capitol Hill massacre, and has been a visiting fellow with the Bureau of Justice Statistics focusing on the measurement of homicide trends. Finally, Fox was honored in 2007 by the Massachusetts Committee against the Death Penalty with the Hugo Adam Bedau Award for excellence in capital punishment scholarship and by Northeastern University with the 2008 Klein Lectureship.
