More About Nobody Left to Hate by Elliot Aronson; Aronson
 
 
 
Overview
On April 20, 1999, the halls of Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, reverberated with the sound of gunshots as two students, highly armed and consumed with rage, killed thirteen students and seriously injured twenty-three before turning the guns on themselves. It was the worst school massacre in out nation's history. Can we prevent a tragedy like this from happening again?
In Elliot Aronson's "Nobody Left to Hate," on of our nation's leading social psychologists argues that the negative atmosphere in our schools--the exclusion, taunting, humiliation, and bullying--played a major role in triggering the pathological behavior of the shooters. At the very least, such an atmosphere makes schools an unpleasant experience for most normal students.
But it doesn't have to be. "Nobody Left to Hate" offers concise, practical, and easy-to-apply strategies for creating a more supportive, stimulating, and compassionate environment in our schools. Based on decades of scientific research and classroom testing, these strategies explain how students can be taught to control their own impulses, how to respect others, and how to resolve conflicts amicably. In addition, they show teachers how to structure classes to promote cooperation, rather than competition, without sacrificing academics. On the contrary, education is greatly enhanced.
For parents, teachers, or anyone concerned with what is happening in our schools, "Nobody Left to Hate" provides a simple and effective plan of action that will make their children's school not only a safe place, but a more humane place of learning.

"At a time when many people in public life are offering quick fixes and punitive strategies based upon faulty analyses of the problem, Aronson offers a road map for changing the social environment of the school from competition and nastiness to cooperation and acceptance. Bravo "--James Garbarino, Ph.D., author of "Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them" and Professor of Human Development at Cornell University
"An important book. It has the potential to change how the public and policy makers think about the Littleton tragedy and how to make our schools safe havens where the joy of learning is the focusaenot the fear of violence. Aronson is the leading social psychologist of our era and a scientist with an extraordinary record of accomplishment and a communicator par excellence."--Len Saxe, Ph.D., Professor of Social Welfare, Brandeis University
"What a great idea to apply social psychology to the schools of today . . . Aronson's knowledge of social psychology, his research, and experience on cooperative learning in schools, and his rhetorical gifts make him the perfect person to write this book."--Dave Myers, Professor of Psychology, Hope College, and author of the textbook "Psychology "
"Aronson's brilliant social psychological analysis of the Columbine High School massacre . . . offers a root cause solution based on decades of scientific psychological research
