Editorial Reviews


"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." (Gail Connelly, Executive Director, National Association of Elementary School Principals)

"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." (Gerald N. Tirozzi, Executive Director, National Association of Secondary School Principals)

"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." (Alfonso E. Lenhardt, President and CEO, National Crime Prevention Council)

"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." (Scott Hirschfeld, Director of Curriculum, Anti-Defamation League)

"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." (Tina Meier, Cyberbullying Activist, Founder, The Megan Meier Foundation)

"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." (Mike Donlin, Senior Program Consultant 2009-05-14)

"An exemplary volume, providing information, tools, resources that can be used in every school." (Teaching Tolerance magazine 2011-10-18)

Format: Paperback
I am a counselor in a middle school and found this book to be a powerful read. It is very well organized and indexed. Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard is eye-opening to the huge concern of Cyberbullying - from the basics to prevention, as well as important legal issues. This would be an awesome read for staff development, or any educator invested in protecting our students. The last section of the book has awesome resources that include activities not only for students, but also for staff development.

Format: Paperback
In their new book, "Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard," Professors Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin perform a valuable public service by pulling aside the curtain that blinds far too many parents and educators from the dangers and challenges of cyberspace. This excellent work takes its place among a growing number of books and articles that explore this modern phenomenon and ranks among the best.

While the book contains the research data and exhaustive research that one expects from a scholarly work, it includes an important element that is too often lacking: compassion. It is obvious, from the first example of how cyberbullying works and what it can do, that the authors genuinely care about the victims, most of them young people who are unprepared for the rigors that cyberspace can bring. In addition, they clearly care about parents and educators who wrestle with the problems of cyberspace on a daily basis and provide all parties methods and strategies to deal with them.

Professional educators will particularly appreciate the practical information and useful documents included in the book. This book is not only extremely useful for the "end user," but also for a "trainer of trainers" curriculum. It is rare to find so many elements in one accessible, easily read work. This book belongs on the shelf of anybody concerned about cyberbullying and its effect on schools and children.

Sameer Hinduja and Justin W. Patchin's book highlights the growing and pervasive problem of cyberbullying with rich detail and thorough research. Every educator and parent should read this book to understand how technology can be used as a vehicle to bully. I knew cyberbullying was a global problem; however, I didn't know the myriad of ways that adolescents can cyberbully and its array of negative short and long-term effects on victims. I realized that adolescents are really in their own "private worlds" with technology, and adults need to be more aware, proactive, and computer savvy to help ameliorate this frightening issue. An excellent, concise, and compelling book with real stories and helpful strategies to combat this problem. Superb!!

Format: Paperback
This book is divided into seven chapters that provide a concise analysis and summary of the current state of knowledge regarding cyberbullying. The first half of the book engages in such matters as the explosive nationwide growth of teen Internet activities, how cyberbullying is different from other instances of bullying, and the debilitating effects cyberbullying can have on youngsters. The authors' first-hand research on cyberbullying, outlined in Chapters 3 and 4, is compelling. In the largest project of its kind, Hinduja and Patchin conducted a survey of student online behavior among 2,000 middle-school children randomly selected from one of the largest school districts in the United States. They found that 17.3 % had been cyberbullied at least once in their lifetime, 17.6% admitted to cyberbullying others at some point in their lifetime, and 12% reported being both a victim and perpetrator of cyberbullying. The authors also discuss the findings of a study they conducted on how teens are representing themselves and interacting with others on Internet social networking sites. Aside from their own path-breaking research, Hinduja and Patchin draw together in a clear and meaningful way the current research on youth centered correlates of cyberbullying such as age, gender, and race. They also meld personal stories of cyberbully victims with a detailed examination of the motivations of youth who cyberbully and the communication mediums they use to harass victims.

The second half of the book is extremely thorough in providing an overview of legal issues confronting school officials in responding to cyberbullying incidents as well as offering practical suggestions to educators for putting anti-cyberbullying rules in place in the school setting.

Format: Paperback
As a future teacher and someone who has been cyber bullied, Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard really does a wonderful job of highlighting the problem. Teachers and parents fail to realize the damage of cyber bullying much too often. Even if they do see the damage, most do not know how to help or fix it. This book highlights exactly what bullying is, popular sites that it will probably found on, the different forms of cyber bullying, how to prevent it, and even legal issues that can arise with cyber bullying. This is probably the most complete assessment of cyber bullying that parents, teachers, and students have. I especially like the passage illustrating how schools and teachers can use social media to their benefit. Although cyber bullying is a problem, we need to face it with the technology instead of get rid of the technology in our schools altogether. This book highlights everything that anyone needs to know about cyber bullying, which makes it a worthwhile read.
