 New Book on Ethnic Violence in Schools

book cover

Burning Dislike: Ethnic Violence in High Schools, by CER Chair Martín Sánchez-Jankowski, analyzes inter-ethnic conflict that leads to violence among high school students. Based on two ethnographic studies in California and Massachusetts, the book documents the process of sparks of conflict escalating into violence and identifies the conditions under which these "fires" emerge.
