About this book

By examining averted school rampage incidents, this work addresses problematic gaps in school violence scholarship and advances existing knowledge about mass murder, violence prevention, bystander intervention, threat assessment, and disciplinary policy in school contexts.

Reviews

"Madfis has made a masterful contribution to our understanding of school rampage shootings. His new book provides not only a conceptual overview but also a practical guide for the assessment and prevention of school violence.' - Jack Levin, Co-Director of the Brudnick Center on Violence and Conflict at Northeastern University, USA, and co-author of Extreme Killing: Understanding Serial and Mass Murder

"The Risk of School Rampage makes a major contribution to our understanding of how school violence schemes are developed and provides insight about core recurring themes in the planning of rampage violence across a range of cases." - Stuart Henry, Professor of Criminal Justice and Director of the School of Public Affairs, San Diego State University, USA

"On the subject of assessing and preventing acts of extreme violence in schools, this book sets the standard as the forefront of rigorous knowledge. This book is essential reading for anyone with the desire to understand evenhanded social scientific perspectives on the risks and prevention of school rampages." - Glenn W. Muschert, Professor of Sociology, Criminology, and Social Justice Studies, Miami University, USA
