Published in 1989, this book provides an international perspective on bullying. Bullying - defined in the context of this book as psychological or physical violence directed from a group or individual over a period of time against a person who is unable to defend themselves – is a phenomenon that effects countries and cultures worldwide and therefore a subject on which an international perspective is of great value.
This book offers an empirical overview of research of its time. This overview includes major research findings in Scandinavia, Britain, and several other European countries as well as including approaches to tackling bullying developed in both Europe and USA.
International contributors provide accounts of their work based on practical and proven approaches to prevention and intervention. Their conclusions will interest all who are concerned with this serious problem including those involved in education, psychology, and researchers.
