Maybe we thought the horror called school shooting had been laid to rest, but in fact, it never really went away. Since the terrifying incident at Columbine in 1999, senseless shootings at schools have claimed over four hundred student and faculty lives worldwide. In March and April of 2006 alone, sixteen deadly Columbine-style plots were hatched by over twenty-five students arrested across the U.S. from the heartland up to North Pole, Alaska. In September, another deadly shooting in Montreal. The violence and plans for mayhem have continued unabated. Until this book, no one has effectively answered the question, "Why do they do it?" The Shooting Game is both an overview of the entire thirty-year school shooting phenomenon and a harrowing, detailed examination of the only shooting incident in which a young man first murdered his parents-both of them teachers-before carrying out a deadly attack on his school. Award-winning journalist, university educator and six times published author Joseph Lieberman gives heart to the statistics and lays bare the soul of these tragedies by revealing the synchronous nature and common roots of school shooting, workplace rampage and suicidal terrorist acts. The Shooting Game is a book that no parent, educator, administrator, law official or counselor can afford not to read. Book jacket.
