<p><span>Tackling the difficult and charged topic of weaponized school violence, </span><span>A Relentless Threat: Scholars Respond to Teens on Weaponized School Violence</span><span> examines some of the root causes that lead teen shooters to make the decision to kill their teachers and peers. This research and commentary on gun violence in U.S. schools positions the reader to understand its historical and political context and to reflect on its social and emotional causes. The book explores potential solutions to this uniquely American phenomenon through a variety of scholarly lenses. With a focus on research and pragmatic solutions, these academics respond directly to individual teen voices in an effort to recognize those stakeholders most often dismissed. This book includes discussion on U.S. firearms policy, ostracism, bullying, social media, capitalizing on shooter events, and programs in schools to prevent violence. </span><span>A Relentless Threat: Scholars Respond to Teens on Weaponized School Violence </span><span>establishes the groundwork for the second book by the editors (</span><span>Dress Rehearsals for Gun Violence: Confronting Trauma and Anxiety in America’s Schools</span><span>) by examining how we got to this point and what actions may be taken to stop future rampage shootings in schools.</span></p>
<p><span>A Relentless Threat</span><span> assembles a range of scholars who situate the phenomenon of school shootings in their own academic areas of expertise. Each author responds to a selected teen voice reflecting on their personal experiences attending school under the constant threat of a school shooting.</span></p>
