Back cover copy

Bullying among adolescents has long been recognized as a serious problem throughout the world. With the advent of modern forms of communication, however, bullying is no longer confined to the school playground -- now it occurs in cyber-space. "Cyberbullying in the Global Playground" provides the first in-depth analysis of the emerging phenomenon of cyberbullying across globe. To enhance our understanding of this new behavioral trend, the authors share the results -- and offer their insightful analysis -- of projects relating to cyberbullying undertaken in the following countries: Austria, Canada, England, Finland, Italy, Japan, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Australia, and the U.S. Exploring the variety of commonalities and differences among the various studies heightens our understanding of the myriad issues surrounding cyberbullying, and may assist in reducing or preventing its practice. The ultimate goal of this volume is to help design the most effective intervention, evaluation, and policy strategies to discourage cyberbullying and encourage healthier relationships among the children and youth growing up in today's digital age.
