We have organized the contributions in this book according to three interrelated themes: explorations of disruption, hierarchical layers and practices; and, towards systemic change. As we worked to determine the organization, we were interested in the ways in which the contributors spoke from their social locations and how the chapters related and conversed with each other. The introductory chapter outlines the organization of the book with brief summaries of each chapter as well as common definitions of terminology used throughout the book. Our discussion of the chapters included in this book illuminates the reasons why this book would be useful as a course textbook and/or as a training guide for numerous organizations and institutions interested in countering forms of aggression, violence and harassment.
