'This book is a welcome and refreshing addition to the titles on bullying. It will be very useful for a broad audience of people concerned about the important problem of school bullying; educators will find it particularly valuable. I greatly appreciate the humanistic, constructivist perspective taken by this author, and by extension, the focus on non-punitive approaches to deal with the problem. The socio-ecological view of the problem is consistent with current "systems" understanding of this behavior. This is a practical book, filled with suggestions of a variety of sound strategies for preventing and intervening in bullying situations. The preventative strategies go beyond the typical anti-bullying programs and describe pedagogical methods to create an environment that discourages bullying. The preventive strategies include the non-punitive methods that I think do not get sufficient attention. The format of the text is quite appealing; the layout is reader-friendly, and the figures are excellent. They present the text material in a visual way that helps readers understand the relationships among concepts. I heartily recommend this book to all who would like a fresh perspective and practical, usable ideas to apply in their own settings' -
