Taking Stock of the Literature: A Qualitative Review of Twenty-five Years of Stalking Research

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Stalking is a construct that as a behavior has a long history but as a crime is a relatively new idea with a short empirical history. Ever since men and women have lived together stalking has occurred in one form or another (Meloy, 1999). Research on stalking became the interest of social scientists, legal scholars and medical professionals when California passed the first anti-stalking law in 1993. In the twenty five years since stalking became a crime there have been hundreds of studies on who stalkers and targets are, why people stalk, the response of the medical and criminal justice professionals to this behavior as well as the legal constructs of the crime. The present study is a comprehensive systematic qualitative review of the state of the art of stalking research. Drawing from both published and unpublished sources the present review pools information from multiple disciplines including; government reports, social science research, law reviews and medical literature to review what we know about stalking. Finding and suggestions for future research based on the review will be presented.
