Cyber Bullying: A Reference Handbook provides an easy-to-read, yet complete and authoritative guide for anyone affected by or concerned about this societal problem. Topically arranged, the book describes the various manifestations of cyber bullying and examines attendant technological and legal issues, discussing the profiles and motivations of cyber bullies and detailing the potentially devastating impacts of victimization. Finally, the authors look at possibilities for response and intervention by parents, teachers, schools, and legal authorities. To complete the picture, the background and history of bullying is explored and a worldwide perspective offered. Information in Cyber Bullying is drawn from a number of studies including the authors' 2007 Survey of Internet and At-Risk Behaviors, which polled over 40,000 elementary, middle, and high school students along with hundreds of teachers and parents. Survey data is presented, as are real-life examples that bring home the damaging effects of cyber bullying of various kinds.
