Review by Choice Review

Driven by their inquisitive nature to examine the complexities of bullying behaviors, Cohen (Univ. of Washington) and Brooks (Worcester State Univ.) encapsulate their three-year long research project in this timely publication. Through the application of the social constructivist perspective, the authors present their findings in eight distinct chapters that guide the audience on a journey to understanding school bullying. Beginning with "Bullying and the Shifting Construction of a Social Problem" to the concluding "Finding Comfort in Complexity," each chapter presents a unique viewpoint that challenges the traditional mind-set on such a socially significant issue. This book should be a permanent part of the libraries of scholars, practitioners, and parents who are seeking an extensive review of bullying and techniques to effectively address factors associated with school bullying. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels. --Mickie Wong-Lo, Northeastern Illinois University
