Editorial Reviews

'This book provides a fascinating and considered insight into a phenomenon advancing as almost as quickly as technology itself....the book offers many ways of joining together to combat cyber bullying, while providing a comprehensive and scholarly study of the subject.' - Children and Young People Now "Shariff (McGill U., Canada) examines the problem of cyber-bullying and describes how it differs from traditional bullying, and differences in the UK, US, Canada, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. She addresses the role of gender, and solutions that involve legislation and filtering technology, as well as the debates that students should have rights to freedom of expression and that parents should take responsibility. She details key factors such as influences on children's behavior, the power structure within school systems, and why typical approaches to address the problem don't work. She argues that students are reflecting society in their actions and that proactive responses need to be taken that educate them and involve parents and teachers, rather than mere punishment. She aims the book at educators, policy makers, parents, the media, and technology providers." -- Book News Inc., August 2008
