Summary
"In movies such as Fatal Attraction and One Hour Photo stalking simply scares and titillates. But it violently ended the lives of Jill Dando, Rebecca Schaeffer and John Lennon, for example, and thousands of people endure it everyday both from ex-lovers and complete strangers. Stalking has been a fact of human society for a surprisingly long time, yet it is only in the last two decades that the term has come into wide use. Bran Nicol's unprecedented study, which chronicles how acts of extreme obsession have created a public fixation of their own, draws on a wealth of sources - including forensic psychology, films, literature, news reports, novels and cultural theory - to examine stalking as a behaviour and a social phenomenon. He also examines the role that stalking plays in our contemporary media-saturated culture, posing provocative questions about the state of modern society: Have interpersonal relations become increasingly intense or more perverse today? Could we be dealing with something truly new, or is stalking simply the latest name for an age-old form of social interaction? Stalking also examines cases of deadly obsession with celebrities, such as Jodie Foster, and explores how such fixations are fuelled by mass media and the internet."--Jacket
