Author: by Dave Cullen
Published at: Twelve; Illustrated edition (March 3, 2010)
Ten years in the works, a masterpiece of reportage, this is the definitive account of the Columbine massacre, its aftermath, and its significance, from the acclaimed journalist who followed the story from the outset. “The tragedies keep coming. As we reel from the latest horror ..
.” So begins a new epilogue, illustrating how Columbine became the template for nearly two decades of “spectacle murders.” It is a false script, seized upon by a generation of new killers. In the wake of Newtown, Aurora, and Virginia Tech, the imperative to understand the crime that sparked this plague grows more urgent every year.
What really happened April 20, 1999? The horror left an indelible stamp on the American psyche, but most of what we “know” is wrong. It wasn’t about jocks, Goths, or the Trench Coat Mafia. Dave Cullen was one of the first reporters on scene, and spent ten years on this book-widely recognized as the definitive account.
With a keen investigative eye and psychological acumen, he draws on mountains of evidence, insight from the world’s leading forensic psychologists, and the killers’ own words and drawings-several reproduced in a new appendix. Cullen paints raw portraits of two polar opposite killers.
5. Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town
Author: by Jon Krakauer
Published at: Anchor; Reprint edition (January 12, 2016)
A devastating expos of colleges and local law enforcement…. A substantive deep dive into the morass of campus sex crimes, where the victim is too often treated like the accused. Entertainment WeeklyMissoula, Montana, is a typical college town, home to a highly regarded state university whose beloved football team inspires a passionately loyal fan base.
Between January 2008 and May 2012, hundreds of students reported sexual assaults to the local police. Few of the cases were properly handled by either the university or local authorities. In this, Missoula is also typical. In these pages, acclaimed journalist Jon Krakauer investigates a spate of campus rapes that occurred in Missoula over a four-year period.
Taking the town as a case study for a crime that is sadly prevalent throughout the nation, Krakauer documents the experiences of five victims: their fear and self-doubt in the aftermath; the skepticism directed at them by police, prosecutors, and the public; their bravery in pushing forward and what it cost them.

In her new book, Tish Jenningsan internationally recognized leader in the field of social and emotional learningshares research and experiential knowledge about the practices that support students’ healing, build their resilience, and foster compassion in the classroom.
In Part I, Jennings describes the effects of trauma on body and mind, and how to recognize them in students’ behavior. In Part II, she introduces the trauma-sensitive practices she has implemented in her work with schools. And in Part III, she connects the dots between mindfulness, compassion, and resilience.

15. Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies That Created The Parkland Shooter and Endanger America's Students
Author: by Andrew Pollack
Published at: Post Hill Press (September 10, 2019)
The Parkland school shooting was the most avoidable mass murder in American history. And the policies that made it inevitable have spread to your school. “After my sister Meadow was murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the media obsessed for months about the type of rifle the killer used.
It was all clickbait and politics, not answers or justice. That wasn’t good enough for us. My dad is a real tough guy, but Meadow had him wrapped around her little finger. He would do anything she wanted, and she would want him to find every answer so that this never happens again.
My dad teamed up with one of America’s leading education experts to launch his own investigation. We found the answers to the questions the media refused to ask. Questions about school safety that go far beyond the national gun debate.
And the answers to those questions matter for parents, teachers, and schoolchildren nationwide. If one single adult in the Broward County school district had made one responsible decision about the Parkland shooter, then my sister would still be alive. But every bad decision they made makes total sense once you understand the district’s politically correct policies, which started here in Broward and have spread to thousands of schools across America.” -Hunter Pollack, “Foreword”
