The purpose of this book is to examine violence on college campuses and prepare campus practitioners to both prevent and respond to violence. Since the first edition was published, major violence has redefined the landscape, most notably the experiences of 9/11 and the tragedy of the Virginia Tech massacre. On the positive side, however, great strides have been made in understanding violence and how to prevent,.interrupt, and respond to both internal and external threats; this growth is reflected in this new edition. The book is organized into three major sections. The first section addresses broad campus violence concerns and violence conceptualization; understanding the basics of violence; and identifying the cast of characters: targets, perpetrators, protectors, and bystanders. The second section explores general prevention strategies, including looking for warning signs of impending violent acts, building barriers to discourage potential offenders from acting out, and developing effective safety approaches for law enforcement personnel. The third section looks more in depth at particular forms of campus violence including sexual assault, rioting, hate crimes, hazing, homicide, nonsexual assault, and bombing. Each chapter offers recommendations for prevention and follow-up strategies. Salient case examples and a comprehensive glossary further enhance the text. Violence Goes to College offers hope that somewhere between Pollyanna and paranoia, campuses can find a healthy balance between reasonable protection and personal freedom. This new edition continues to be a user-friendly resource providing busy college personnel, students, and parents with directed, well-researched strategies to prepare for the possibility of tragedy before it strikes. It is not only a valuable tool for college administrators, but also a useful research book for journalists, psychologists, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys.
