Nathan Glazer Reviews Columbine

ColumbineNew on the EdNext website: Nathan Glazer’s review of Columbine, a 2009 book by Dave Cullen.

“The book is clearly the last word on Columbine,” Glazer begins.  Cullen has studied all of the evidence and official reports and interviewed everyone interviewable, Glazer writes.  However, Glazer concludes, “the main effect of his well-researched book is to leave one sober about any program that might prevent such horrible events from recurring in the future.”

NB: Last month, Dave Cullen wrote a short blog entry “Is Ft. Hood Like Columbine?” at  the NurtureShock blog.
