Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This timely offering presents an overview of school and college violence on campuses around the world. Signed entries cover a range of topics, including more than 50 case studies representing a spectrum of infractions (e.g., bullying, cybercrimes, date violence, drugs, gambling, hate crimes, shootings). Separate articles consider actions either perpetrated by or aimed at specific audiences: students from elementary school through college, athletes, gang members, or teachers. Entries address crimes in various settings—private schools, rural areas, and suburbia—and a series of articles offers global comparisons: Africa, Asia, Canada, the European Union, Latin America, the Middle East, and South America. Additional articles address related topics, including court cases, organizations and prevention programs, and policies and responses. Behavioral theories are addressed (e.g., Biological, Social structure), as are possible correlating factors (ADD/ADHD, mental illness, social networking, video games, etc.). Articles range from one to several pages. Each is accompanied by suggestions for further reading (websites, professional and popular periodicals, and monographs). Occasional black-and-white photos accompany the text. Researchers can access information through alphabetical or topical lists of entries or through the comprehensive index. There is a school crime and violence time line, sample discussion questions for students or study groups, and suggestions for extension activities suitable for classes: film screenings, song-lyric analyses, debates, mock trials, or ways to promote awareness and activism, such as websites, letters to policymakers, forums, community projects, and so on. Appendixes list pertinent federal legislation, primary source documents, Supreme Court decisions, and lists of recommended films and resources.This set will be of interest to collections serving researchers in high school and up as well as those supporting education professionals taking continuing-education courses. Recommended. --Kathleen McBroom
