"The editors of this volume present a comprehensive collection of empirically derived chapters ranging from theoretical reviews to program evaluation. In one review, the characteristics of victims and the cycle of bullying are examined from the perspective of social learning theory. Further theorizing focuses on social-biological-evolutionary explanations and the role of dominance. Group theory is also included with respect to peer acceptance, belonging, and group culture. Literature on family, peer, and school influences is reviewed, as is the contribution of factors such as gender, age, and heterosexual relationships. The roles of personality characteristics and self-concept are addressed through research conducted in school settings. Early interventions throughout the preschool and elementary school levels are reviewed with examples of school-based programs that have withstood rigorous evaluations. Systemic prevention programs are critiqued for effectiveness and limitations, and suggestions for improvement are made. In all, this volume contains a wealth of empirical information on what has become a particularly salient aspect of the current culture children are exposed to during their school years. Individuals who work with children in many capacities, including teachers, counselors, and other school personnel, will find this an invaluable resource. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." -CHOICE "...provides an excellent overview of current research in the are of school-based bullying." -Caroline Hunt, JOURNAL OF ADOLESCENCE 29 (2006)
