About the Authors
  • Bullying in Schools is the first comparative account of the major intervention projects against school bullying that have been carried out by educationalists and researchers since the 1980s, across Europe, North America and Australasia. Working on the principle that we can learn from success as well as failure, this book examines the processes as well as the outcomes, and critically assesses the likely reasons for success or failure. With contributions from leading researchers in the field, it is an important addition to the current debate on tackling this distressing problem.

    'This book is an important … addition to the literature on bullying in schools. It has been edited by three experts of world standing each of whom is personally at the cutting edge of the research in this field. … the first comparative account of the major intervention projects against school violence and bullying carried out by researchers across Europe, North America and Australasia over the last 25 years. … a unique insight into the variety of approaches adopted. … Whilst it will be of interest to all who are involved in education, this book will be particularly useful for head teachers and for policy-makers involved in considering new approaches and strategies. It will make significant contribution to the current debate on what is 'best practice' in reducing and preventing bullying in schools.' Children & Society
