This text is a wide-ranging examination of the lived experience of intimate stalking victimization. It explores how it feels and what it means to be stalked by a former intimate, and how this situation creates dilemmas for victims and their advocates.

Definitions of situations and identities are contested rather than given in these arenas where lives and self-concepts rest in the balance. The ways in which we socially construct and confer meaning upon intimate violence and its victims profoundly shape what happens to ordinary women facing extraordinary circumstances. "Courting Disaster" illuminates what we can learn from their experience, whether we are working in these arenas or theorizing about how they do, and sometimes do not, work.
