REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

Thanks to this survey the writer wants to emphasize that bullying doesn’t consist only in a series of aberrant behaviours that reflect a lack in organization at school and in a threat of the quality of life of individuals and groups. It is above all the consequence of a faulty socialization process, which indicates the failure of an upbringing model deprived from responsibilities and that doesn’t enhance responsible attitudes. In the book, the relationship between inappropriate parental upbringing examples which are indifferent, aloof, either authoritarian or loose, and the feed-forward of bullying acts is evident. It is underlined that each teacher should at work overcome the role of teaching experts (in order to be considered a key element in the larger reality of the group, as mediator/intermediary between society and family, in the field of media media-education and in the critical analysis of the media-system, of mass communication and of the new-media. This book is particularly useful for teachers, educationalists and social operators.
