Putting an end to stalking

Young People, Stalking Awareness and Domestic Abuse

The e-book version of our textbook is now available! It is freely available to academics and students at institutions registered with Springer Link.

About the book

“Young People, Stalking Awareness and Domestic Abuse” addresses domestic abuse and stalking among young people in the UK and Ireland. It is a vital resource for undergraduate students across criminology, sociology, law, psychology, education, social justice, policing, and forensic psychology, as well as a combination of academic researchers and professionals working within stalking and domestic abuse support and prevention. It closes the gap between academics, education staff, police and professionals working in stalking and abuse services.

The book includes chapters from academics and practitioners and a preface by the co-founders of the Alice Ruggles Trust. It is edited by Maria Mellins (St Mary’s University, Twickenham), Rachael Wheatley (University of Derby) and Caroline Flowers (Nottingham Trent University).

“Young People, Stalking Awareness and Domestic Abuse” is published by Palgrave Macmillan, part of Springer Nature.
