From the reviews:“School Shootings: International Research, Case Studies, and Concepts for Prevention represents an important contribution to the emerging field of research on school rampage shootings, a field that draws from expertise in criminology, psychology, sociology, and media studies. … The volume fills a unique niche and provides a rich foundation for this emerging area of study. This is a book for specialists in this research area as well as for practitioners focused on attenuating risk factors.” (Kellina M. Craig-Henderson, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 58 (24), June, 2013)
