Troll Hunting: Inside the World of Online Hate and its Human Fallout description
In 2013, journalist Ginger Gorman became the victim of online trolling. It left her shaken and afraid but also intrigued about the motivation behind the sustained, virulent attacks. Her curiosity led to Troll Hunting. Meticulously researched, Troll Hunting draws on conversations with psychologists, trolling victims, law enforcement, academics and, most importantly, trolls themselves, to explore the criminals behind and the real life consequences of this uniquely 21st Century phenomenon.
