Handbook of Crimes and Terrorist Acts in Schools and Other Educational Institutions

Information on crimes and terrorist acts committed in kindergartens, schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions, as well as places where children are present en masse, in the period from 2000 to 2023 inclusive.
Currently available for download: Second edition, revised and supplemented. Contains statistical and other information on crimes and incidents of criminal and terrorist nature committed in schools, other educational and children's institutions (including preschools). In addition, the handbook contains the results of statistical analysis of these data, both for separate time periods and in comparison, and, based on the collected information, the author has attempted to create a «statistical model» of a potential criminal.
In this survey, information on especially serious crimes for 23 years, from 2000 to 2023 inclusive, is collected and systematized. The main method of data collection is the analysis of open sources, mainly media publications, criminological literature, and specialized resources on the Internet. Unfortunately, open sources do not always contain complete and reliable information about the crime itself, as well as its details, characteristics and personalities of the suspects. Therefore, it is likely that the first editions may not include all incidents and details of the crimes committed. Work on correcting existing information by collecting new information will continue. Periodically, new editions of the handbook will be published, corrected and supplemented to take into account new information.
From the author and editor: Dear colleagues, I will be very grateful to everyone who is ready to help me in the work on the handbook, to supplement the edition with information about crimes that are not specified in it and their features. The principles of collecting, sending, reviewing and verifying information, as well as contact information for contacting the author and editor of the handbook are specified in the final part of the handbook, section «Prospects for publishing new versions of the handbook» (page 80).
My goal: to make a useful, convenient, informative, and, most importantly, publicly accessible reference and analytical tool for researchers and specialists in ensuring the safety of schools and other educational institutions from threats of various types and nature, as well as for all those who are interested in this topic.
