Slate’s Emily Bazelon Takes On Bullying in ‘Sticks and Stones’

A new book by Slate senior editor Emily Bazelon is worth a read if you’re concerned about bullying.

“Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy” takes the issue around the corner, beyond bullying and toward solutions. Many books try to do that, as we did in “The New Bullying,” but Bazelon seems to have built her book around the solution, rather than the problem.

An attorney with long experience in the social and legal consequences of bullying among teens, she has done a good job of advancing the debate, both in the book and on the circuit.

The book is getting mostly favorable reviews, but it is also opening conversations with people who see things differently than she does. And that is to be expected on this subject.
