This book provides a comprehensive overview of cyberbullying that includes research, prevention strategies for parents and educators, intervention strategies, and legal issues. It is an updated version of the author's previous work and it should be required reading for parents, educators, and youth serving organization personnel. It also provides a thorough foundation in traditional bullying and helps us understand the similarities and differences between online and offline bullying.
