Product Description

Review

By examining forms of group violence that are not typically evaluated together in the same work, The Causes and Consequences of Group Violence: From Bullies to Terrorists greatly adds to the body of knowledge on collective violence and its consequences. The implications of the research included in this book extend to academics, students, policymakers, and other professionals who are seeking to implement evidence-based policy responses to collective violence. -- Laura Agnich, Georgia Southern University Group and collective violence is ubiquitous over time and space and its incidence is seemingly increasing, yet it is a tremendously understudied phenomenon. The Causes and Consequences of Group Violence is a welcome and much-needed addition to this area of study. This book examines victims and offenders of collective violence and considers the full range of such behaviors, including genocide, terrorism, civil resistance, hate crimes, vigilantism, bullying, and school shootings. It will be valuable for faculty and students in the fields of collective behavior, social movements, criminology, and political sociology. -- John Cochran, University of South Florida This book is a much-needed addition to our growing awareness of the interconnectedness of forms of violence on a variety of levels, and as such should be required reading for scholars, policymakers, pundits, and students of society. The assemblage of contributors is top-notch, the research is clear and comprehensive, and many of the ideas contained herein will guide fruitful discussions about the issue of group violence. If you've ever been left speechless when confronted with reports of shocking violence, read this book. -- Glenn W. Muschert, Miami University, Ohio
