Annotation

Public awareness of bullying has increased tremendously in recent years, largely through its representation in film, television and novels. In popular media targeted towards young readers and viewers, depictions of bullying can present teachable moments and relatable situations. Written from a variety of perspectives, this collection of new essays offers a broad overview of bullying. The contributors discuss the changing face of bullying in popular media, bullying among females, parents who cyberbully, anti-bullying novels, the phenomenon of a Schadenfreude obsessed culture, and how reality television shapes youth perceptions of what is acceptable aggressiveness.
