The Bully Society: School Shootings and the Crisis of Bullying in America's Schools IntersectionsNYU Press #ad - Used book in Good Condition.

Heartbreaking interviews illuminate how both boys and girls obtain status by acting “masculine”—displaying aggression at one another’s expense as both students and adults police one another to uphold gender stereotypes. Klein shows that the aggressive ritual of gender policing in american culture creates emotional damage that perpetuates violence through revenge, manifesting in high rates of suicide, self-cutting, truancy, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, but also related problems in schools, and that this cycle is the main cause of not only the many school shootings that have shocked America, and substance abuse.
