The New Bullying: How social media, social exclusion, laws and suicide have changed our definition of bullying – and what to do about it" is primarily concerned with the issue of how bullying has changed from about 1997 to 2012. The authors' thesis was that bullying has changed considerably, but that some adults are not aware of the change. This book is intended to document that change. Among the changes that were examined are the rise of cyberbullying, social exclusion as a form of bullying, new laws about school bullying, computer crimes and threats and a growing willingness on the part of the public to talk about bullying and its perceived connection to suicide and violence, especially in schools.
