3 stars? 4 stars? I dunno. In any case don't come to this book hoping for lurid tales of stalking. Stalking would probably be classified under culture studies: Nicol discusses the subject by referring to psychoanalytic ideas, legal issues, history,sociology, literature, personal accounts, and film. (He even refers to that great Alan Partidge episode.) With so broad a range of references he's able to suggest causes and connections that mightn't have occurred to the reader, e.g. a stalker's behaviour arising partly from a certain cultural confusion, or the likeness between a Poe character, the flaneur, journalists, and stalkers.

I've yet to read a Reaktion book that wasn't intelligent, thoughtful, very interesting, and at least slightly quirky. I would have read this one happily had it been much longer than it is. Great cover photo, incidentally--very creepy indeed.
