Editorial Reviews

Teaching Tolerance magazine
"An exemplary volume, providing information, tools, resources that can be used in every school. "
Gail Connelly
"School leaders need information about cyberbullying and resources on how to protect the children in their care. This book provides timely research, best practices, and personal voices from students that will go a long way toward improving student safety. "
Gerald N. Tirozzi
"Hinduja and Patchin are two of the most respected researchers on cyberbullying, and their in-depth research lays the foundation for this book. This book contains the best practices that principals can implement at their schools to prevent and respond to acts of cyberbullying. "
Alfonso E. Lenhardt
"Cyberbullying can have the same debilitating effects on a young person as face-to-face bullying: depression, a drop in school grades, loss of self-esteem, suicide, and other violent acts. We simply must do all we can to stop this devastating problem. This book is an excellent resource that clearly presents the relevant issues and provides many practical strategies to help readers address cyberbullying. "
Scott Hirschfeld
"An important contribution to the burgeoning literature on cyberbullying and a valuable tool for concerned adults that will enhance the safety and well-being of young people as they navigate their increasingly technological worlds. Backed by years of research and enhanced by the authors' perspectives from the worlds of criminology, juvenile justice, and computer science, this book offers educators, families, and youth service providers an array of useful information, ranging from the social and legal context to concrete strategies for responding to cyberbullying. "
Tina Meier
"Cyberbullying is a significant concern for teens and tweens in the 21st century. This timely and informative book brings adults up to speed on how kids are using technology to harm their peers. "
Mike Donlin
"Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin get it! There are only a few researchers and others who are focusing on this growing problem, and these two are pioneers in the field. While there is a lot of press about Internet safety issues such as predators and pedophiles, cyberbullying—using 21st-century technologies as tools of peer abuse—tends to get lost in the shuffle. As professors of criminal justice, they get the fact that cyberbullying is not fundamentally a technology problem. Rather, it is a social and educational problem involving youth and their use of a variety of new technologies. The first responders should be parents and educators. From the table of contents and the preface, through each chapter, and throughout the wealth of immediately usable tools, this book is both an eye-opener and a hands-on text for classroom and support program educators and parents. It also puts things into practical perspective for professionals in law enforcement and the technology industry. It will take all of us to keep our young people safe in this new technological world. This is a much-needed resource. "
