What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"It is, therefore, both a useful introduction to the conceptual and definitional issues relating to peer violence, as well as to the substantive issues relating to the individual chapter topics." (Children & Society, 2011)

"The subject matter makes for an uncomfortable read but it is worth the endeavour. This is an important text that social workers should read and absorb." (Oxford Journals Clippings, 1 January 2012)
