In this volume,experts from a range of disciplines use a variety of perspectives, notably those of public health, criminology, ecology, and developmental psychology, to review research on the causes of youth violence in the nation's schools and communities and on school-based interventions that have prevented or reduced it. They describe and evaluate strategies for the prevention and treatment of violence that go beyond punishment and incarceration. The volume offers a strategy for the problem of youth violence, arguing that the most effective interventions use a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach and take into account differences in stages of individual development and involvement in overlapping social contexts, families, peer groups, schools and neighborhoods. This book can be used profitably by school teachers and administrators, scholars, policy makers, and those who work with young people at risk, as well as by the general reader who is concerned with current social problems.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Violence in American Schools could not have appeared at a more opportune time. This book represents the concerted effort of a number of nationally recognized authorities on youth violence. The contributors were charged with preparing coherent, integrated, state-of-the-art summaries of the research on various topics related to youth violence and developing recommendations for the design and implementation of effective prevention measures. The product of their labor is a volume of considerable value." APA Review of Books
"There is much to like about this book. The authors provide an excellent review of the empirical literature. They establish an important set of facts about youth violence and efforts to prevent it. use a host of provocative, complementary perspectives." Contemporary
