Look Inside the Book

“Bullying is a term that’s being, well, bullied. It’s been rendered essentially powerless by being constantly kicked around,” writes nationally recognized bullying expert Elizabeth Kandel Englander. In this practical and insightful book, Englander dispels pervasive myths and misconceptions about peer cruelty, bullying, and cyberbullying.


Elizabeth Englander has written an essential book about bullying that every educator—and any parent thinking about how schools should handle this issue—should read. It’s full of wisdom, practical advice, and original research, all of which reflect Englander’s status as one of the foremost experts in the field. — Emily Bazelon, author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy

This much-needed book presents effective ideas and techniques based on the experiences of real children and teens. I recommend it highly. — Stan Davis, author of Schools Where Everyone Belongs, and codirector, Youth Voice Project

Dr. Englander has effectively combined insight derived from research with her experiences working directly with schools to produce a book that provides a quality resource for educational leaders and policy makers. This book is a welcome contribution to the field. — Nancy Willard, director, Embrace Civility in the Digital Age

This book is an important read for educators and parents who are seeking a transparent review of bullying and cyberbullying and applicable techniques to effectively address factors associated with bullying and cyberbullying. — M. Wong-Lo, CHOICE

[Bullying and Cyberbullying] represents a substantial contribution to the bullying literature base for its readability, practical focus, and emphasis on a preventative or universal response to burgeoning behavior problems in the form of peer aggression. Englander’s work is a valuable resource to educators, who will likely find it both appealing and efficacious in relation to the time invested in reading this book among competing titles in this genre.
