I acknowledge the following for their support and guidance: Harvey A. Allen, without whom my research in school disturbance would never have begun; Mildred Vasan, without whom this book would not have been possible; James T. Sabin at Greenwood Publishing Group, for his efforts in this work; Ellen Dorosh for her efforts in the final production of this book; Chris Plyler and Lila Meeks for their confidence and support; and Reid H. Montgomery, Jr., who has been my close friend and mentor for many years.
I also offer my thanks and love to my parents, Gordon and Joyce Crews; my in-laws, Paul and Jean Player; and again to my family, Pam, Garris, and Samantha, for making it all worthwhile.
A work such as this cannot be undertaken and completed successfully without the cooperation of many friends and colleagues. For their support I would like to thank my coauthor, Gordon A. Crews, for inviting me to participate in this project; Mildred Vasan and Praeger Publishers; Alan Wieder, for his patience; and my colleagues Cole Blease Graham, Jr.; Ellis C. MacDougal; William J. Mathias; James G. Fraser; and Karen A. Hutto.
For their love and guidance I thank my family and special friends: my parents Dinah and Steve Long, and Buddy and Connie Counts;
