Challenging Violence in Schools: an Issue of Masculinites

by Martin Mills - £26.99  Open University Press (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780335205844 | ISBN 10: 0335205844

Why are boys the major perpetrators of violence in schools? What are the significant issues which schools need to take into account when dealing with boys' violence? What practical strategies exist to address these issues? A substantial amount of evidence exists which demonstrates how boys are the major perpetrators of violence in schools - from extreme acts of violence such as school shootings in the US to more common forms of schoolyard bullying - and that both girls and boys are their victims. Violence has been "masculinized" in such a way that boys' violence is often a means of demonstrating their masculinity, and this needs recognising and addressing. "It is not an overstatement to say that this book will save lives."
