I can't find the book that I bought our son, but this looks like a good one:

The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander: From Preschool to High School, How Parents and Teachers Can Help Break the Cycle of Violence
by Barbara Coloroso

As far as having your son next to the bullies, my suggestion is go to the school and tell them you insist on having him moved away from the kids who are bullying him. That is nonsense...his job is not to be the catalyst, to make the teacher's job easier. In a positive way, make it known that you realize what's happening, and that you don't want your child to be the scapegoat any longer. The minute he decides he isn't going to put up with the bullying and retaliates, you can bet *he'll* be perceived as the problem.
