Abstract:

When You Send Your Children To School In The Morning, Do You Worry That You May Never See Them Again' 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 the kids who commit the shocking crimes. Lieberman became intimately acquainted with this terrifying epidemic during an unforgettable, heartbreaking 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 offers new understanding on:How many of the shooters were depressed or suicidal, or had psychotic symptomsWhy it is almost always boys, rarely girls, who commit these killingsWhy so many school shootings have taken place in our current cultural climateHow 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. "This book has been a real hit on campus. The students are drawn in immediately, and can hardly put the book down. It's a great book for a College Reading course, and for getting students interested in reading again! I've used it two semesters, and look forward to using the updated version this Fall."--Vicki M. Pettus, Adjunct Professor, Dept. of Language, Literature, and Philosophy, Kentucky State University "Heartbreaking and eye-opening."--Nancy Stap, radio host, Air America "Riveting!"--Madalyn Tower, Oregon School Counselors Association "This is the book that finally connects the dots and could help prevent the next school shooting." --Nancy Willard, author of Cyberbullying, Cyberthreats "Thoughtful and refreshingly frank, this book will no doubt save lives." --Jodee Blanco, author of Please Stop Laughing at Me With 16 pages of dramatic photos.
