The Wiley Blackwell handbook of bullying : a comprehensive and international review of research and intervention

Peter K. Smith (Editor), James O'Higgins-Norman (Editor)
"The meaning of the word bully changed during the seventeenth century from a connotation of admiration to descriptors such as "fine fellow" to "blusterer" to "harasser of the weak" (Harper, 2001-2019a). During the eighteenth century, the word was then used to refer "pimp" or "villain", which was seen as "perhaps an early link between the word bully and the male exploiting the female" (Crawford, 1999, p. 86). As a verb, the word bully can be traced back to 1710, derived from the noun bully and where individuals were thought to engage in behaviors that functioned to "overbear with bluster and menaces" (Harper, 2001-2019a), whereas the word bullying - a gerund - can be found to originate in the 1770s where individuals were described as actively engaging in "insolent tyrannizing, personal intimidation" (Harper, 2001-2019b)."-- Provided by publisher
