Confronting School Bullying: Kids, Culture, and the Making of a Social Problem
Is bullying an innocent part of growing up ... or a serious problem requiring largescale policy remedies? What is behind our rapidly changing perceptions of acceptable behavior? And when is the remedy worse than the problem? In their indepth view of school bullying, Jeffrey Cohen and Robert Brooks navigate between empirical evidence and breathless media accounts to make sense of ongoing debates and provide insights into the failure of punitive antibullying policies.
