Illustrated with case studies throughout, this is the definitive guide and reference for anyone with professional, academic or other interests in this complex behavior.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book is noteworthy for a few reasons. First, it addresses the phenomenon of stalking from an international perspective, which tends to offer a broader view of the behavior. (Admittedly, data is lacking from varied ethnic and cultural populations which could skew findings significantly.) Second, the authors are heavily invested in working with this clinical population, which provides a unique perspective, especially when it comes to assessment and treatment. Third, the book addresses many of the issues particular to this population....This new edition is an interesting read, a worthy contribution to the field, and provides a much needed update on the knowledge gained since the previous edition."
