9781442233560: School Shooters: Understanding High School, College, and Adult Perpetrators
Rezension:

This psychologist [Langman], widely recognized for his expertise, is refreshingly honest...Out of this densely documented book [the author] ... concludes 'There is no one way to prevent school shootings.'...What I came away with was the conclusion that the shooters are people we would all easily identify as 'losers.' Beyond that, there is no specific way of identifying them, only suspicions of their capability to do the unthinkable. Warning Signs Langman dives deep into the backgrounds of our nation's school shooters to analyze their mindsets, discover patterns and dispel common myths. He uncovers numerous critical misconceptions about school shooters and presents key findings to strengthen prevention and intervention practices for keeping schools safe. -- Kenneth S. Trump, M.P.A., President of National School Safety and Security Services, Cleveland, Ohio Peter Langman's book is a welcome advance over the existing popular library of books about school shootings, many of which are grounded in hunch and fueled by hysteria. This volume features insightful analysis of schoolyard assailants, with carefully researched case studies, and should be of immense value to policy-makers and professionals alike. I, for one, will keep Langman's School Shooters on my nearby bookshelf of favorites. For years to come, this book should remain as one of the most important contributions to the fast-growing body of work on the topic of school violence. -- James Alan Fox, Ph.D., The Lipman Professor of Criminology, Law and Public Policy at Northeastern University; author of Violence and Security on Campus: From Pre-School through College School Shooters is a captivating read that reaches beyond the headlines and media coverage to reveal the larger context of the narrative exploring the factors that may have contributed to the attack. The quotes from the attackers at the beginning of each case narrative bring the reader closer to understanding the mind of the killer. Peter Langman truly grapples with events from Columbine to Sandy Hook and his passion, dedication to detail, and ability to draw together complex thoughts in his typology of psychopathic, psychotic, and traumatized school shooters provides a wealth of information. Langman leaves no stone unturned and no narrative unexplored as he lays out for his reader a well-reasoned and meticulously researched book that helps us all better understand what drives some to commit these horrific attacks. Work like Peter Langman's is key, because understanding past attacks is essential to the prevention of future attacks. -- Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D, author, Ending Campus Violence: New Approaches to Prevention; Senior Vice President for Professional Program Development, The NCHERM Group
