About the Book
Bullying Among University Students is a pioneering collection of knowledge and evidence exploring
the under-researched phenomenon of bullying in universities.
Abusive behaviour amongst young people is a serious and pervasive problem that is exacerbated by the rapid advances in electronic communication. In this book, the authors highlight the problem and proceed to facilitate new practices and policies to address it.
The book is edited by Helen Cowie and Carrie Myers, published by Routledge (September 2015).
