A powerful analysis of bullying that addresses the underlying problems of a capitalist consumer-based culture, hypermasculinity, and the ineffectiveness of telling bullying victims to just deal with it. I loved the fact that Klein, unlike many who write and talk about bullying, looks past the "kids will be kids" trope to really look at the socialization taking place in schools and elsewhere. On the other hand, her contention that parents just aren't capable of fighting a $12 billion marketing industry I find questionable, and her blithe commentary about the great work she's done in mediation programs and as a social worker I find somewhat self-serving. She talks about how certain kids came to these great realizations, but I feel that kids learn pretty fast how to say what adults want to hear and aren't necessarily going to learn any life-long lessons from one counseling session. Her assessment of school and community-wide programs was more credible, and it was nice to read a cultural critique that, unlike others, offer solutions to the problems addressed.
