This book makes a welcome contribution to the field of bullying studies on a topic that up to recently
has not received adequate attention. The editors have brought together a significant amount of disparate
research related to bullying among university students that otherwise may have been unknown to the reader
and in doing so have created a critical mass of knowledge that will be the foundation of future research on this
topic. I think it is noteworthy that rather than simply try to transpose established concepts of bullying from
schools and workplaces the editors have attempted to open a discussion about how to conceptualise bullying
among university students and have set out some of the challenges that will be encountered in addressing this
insidious issue in higher education.
