Hickey, Sam, Ed.; Hossain, Naomi, Ed. – Oxford University Press, 2019

Astor, Ron Avi; Benbenisthty, Rami – Oxford University Press, 2019
Since 2005, bullying, school violence, and school safety literatures have expanded dramatically in content, disciplines, and empirical studies.

Schmidt, Patrick – Oxford University Press, 2019
Both in concept and in practice, policy has permeated the deepest recesses of civil society and has had particular impact on the lives of those who are actively connected to the educational process.
