Summary

"Hitherto books on bullying have focused either upon the peer victimization of children in schools or else on the harrassment of adults in the workplace. By contrast, this book takes as its subject matter bullying behaviour in a wide range of settings, including kindergartens and schools, workplaces, the home, prisons and sporting arenas. In each of these areas it examines alternative views and perspectives on bullying and discusses suggestions as to how bullying can be reduced.".

"Dr Ken Rigby draws upon his extensive research on bullying in different countries and societies and different social contexts, and examines the influences behind such behaviour. Within this broader perspective he considers many aspects of bullying including: the defining characteristics of bullying; how bullying has been viewed historically; the harm that bullying does; proposed explanations for bullying behaviour; the contributions of parenting and family life; personality and environmental influences; the role of gender, race, and culture; and current views on methods of prevention and interventions to reduce bullying.".

"In exploring perspectives on bullying, Ken Rigby seeks to deepen our understanding of the phenomena of bullying in its many and varied manifestations. At the same time, he outlines and critically examines proposed ways of tackling bully/victim problems that will be of much interest to professional workers, administrators, psychologists and others who work in this ever expanding field."--BOOK JACKET.
