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.

From the Back Cover:

"Americans are too ready to blame individuals for social problems like youth violence. Elliot Aronson brings to bear the power of social psychology to help us understand why a negative school environment can push vulnerable kids over the edge and how restructuring that environment can bring them back into the fold. 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, PhD, author of Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them and Professor of Human Development at Cornell University

"Dr. Aronson has written an important book. It has the potential to change how the public, and policy makers in particular, think about the Littleton tragedy and how to make our schools safe havens where the joy of learning is the focus--not the fear of violence. There is no question that Aronson is in a position to be an authoritative voice as the leading social psychologist of our era--a scientist with an extraordinary record of accomplishment and a communicator par excellence."
-- Len Saxe, Ph.D., Professor of Social Welfare, Brandeis University

"Aronson's brilliant social psychological analysis of the Columbine High School massacre offers us the mind to understand this mindless violence and the heart that could prevent it from erupting again. . . . Nobody Left to Hate offers a root cause solution based on decades of scientific psychological research and wise theory by the author and his colleagues--change the structure and values of our nation's classrooms to make them more equivalent to an ideal home atmosphere."
-- Philip Zimbardo, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Stanford University
