Overview

In this insightful look at the danger that threatens students and families today, investigative journalist and longtime educator Joseph A. Lieberman takes us inside the minds and hearts of everyone affected by school shootings-and of the kids who commit the shocking crimes.

Lieberman became intimately acquainted with this terrifying epidemic during an unforgettable, heart-breaking encounter with a traumatized survivor of a notorious school shooting. The issue became even more personal when his daughter's schoolgrounds were invaded by an angry fifteen-year-old dropout with two loaded stolen handguns and extra ammunition. After years of intensive research, Lieberman shares his findings, shedding dramatic new light on school shootings-from Columbine to Virginia Tech and more-and offers practical strategies for how we can respond to and even prevent them.

School Shootings brings new understanding of: How many of the shooters were depressed or suicidal, or had psychotic symptoms, Why it is almost always boys-rarely girls-who commit these killings, Why so many school shootings have taken place in our current cultural climate, How American incidents are similar to-and differ from-what's happening in other countries. Whether you're an educator, a parent, a counselor, or in law enforcement, School Shootings is timely, compelling, and indispensable.
