The prevalence of crime and violence occurring in our nation's schools has become the concern of policy makers on the national and state levels. Concern has spread to parents, educators, and students themselves. This edited volume reviews violence in society, school violence, and crime. The essays address past trends in school violence, the current extent of the problem, and aspects of its causes and prevention. The influence on the students and community of gang activity, gang-related issues, drugs, alcohol, and weapons on campus is discussed. - Back cover."@en ;
