School Library Journal

A user-friendly, accessible, and well-organized resource. The authors stress that prevention is the responsibility of all adults who work with children. This book provides 101 short, informative articles covering the research on bullying; defining the practice; victims; bullies; bystanders; cyberbullying; media and video violence; the consequences and legal ramifications of bullying, and prevention. The format will lend itself well to group discussions and give teachers and others who work with young people a solid basis upon which to explore the issues surrounding this prevalent problem. Each chapter also has a list of resources and citations that provide opportunities for additional exploration. This volume would make a great addition to professional collections, along with Barbara Coloroso's The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander (HarperCollins, 2003), Carol McMullen's Creating a Bully-Free Classroom (Scholastic, 2005), or Elizabeth A. Barton's Bully Prevention: Tips and Strategies for School Leaders and Classroom Teachers (Corwin, 2006).-Jennifer Ralston, Harford County Public Library, Belcamp, MD
