Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is simply the best, most up-to-date, most detailed and most thoughtful book about school bullying that you could hope to find.' (Research Papers in Education, August 2009)

'It is a book for parents that draws extensively on research as well as being a practical manual that offers strategies to prevent and combat bullying. The book will certainly be a helpful one—to educators as well as parents—.Ken Rigby's lucid writing style makes it an easy book to read—.The author's laudable aim—to produce an academic book, research-based but accessible to a non-professional readership—is an aim that is manifestly achieved. Children and Bullying contains a refreshing balance of anecdote and information, research and strategy. As a parent it is, for me, reassuring and eminently practical. As a teacher it provides a clear sense of direction in terms of what has been successful in other schools—.And as someone who now who works with both teachers and parents, it is a book I shall recommend to both without hesitation.? (Educational Psychology, November 2008)
