Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The problem of school bullying is one of growing dimensions and is of tremendous concern to teachers, parents, and many of the children themselves. Professor Olweus is without question the world's leading authority on the topic. His book is a succinct yet accurate and thorough statement of the problem and what educators and parents can do to alleviate it. It will be invaluable to its intended readership." Professor David G. Perry, Florida Atlantic University.

"Olweus's book provides evidence that his programme of intervention has encouraging results where it has been applied, leading to significant and sustained reductions in direct and indirect bullying. This should encourage schools and authorities to study the method described and the valuable suggestions made. There is a useful and wide-ranging reference list of works on bullying and aggression." Criminal Behaviour and Mental Health

"Dr Olweus' program, which is in place at 42 Norwegian schools, is the first program against bully/victim problems to be scrutinized by scientific research... The program has been so successful that it is now being set up in several other countries including the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, and the United States. For Dr Olweus... has studied the problem of bullying for 20 years... Dr Olweus' intervention program is described in detail in his book Bullying at School." Pediatric News
