Overview

Encyclopedia of School Crime and Violence is the most comprehensive reference on this deeply unsettling topic ever undertaken. No other volume integrates as much information about the many types of crime and violence occurring in schools as well as the variety of responses and prevention efforts aimed at curbing it.

In a series of alphabetically organized entries, Encyclopedia of School Crime and Violence looks at significant cases both at high schools and on college campuses, with coverage that includes professional and community responses, and theories as to why these events happened. Unlike other volumes that focus only on the most sensational events, the encyclopedia spans the full spectrum of school crime—not just the high profile cases like Columbine and Virginia Tech, but the insidious problems of theft, bullying, cybercrime, violence, sexual assault, and more. Coverage includes information on some cases outside the United States, as well as entries on the government agencies and other organizations dedicated to analyzing and eradicating school crime and violence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Several useful features expand coverage. 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. . . . 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."
