"Simultaneously thorough and readable. This book is a must for anybody who needs to be up on the latest thinking on this complex and difficult topic." --Myra Strober, Stanford University Sexual harassment is a problem with a long past, but a short history. About 15 years after journalists and scholars first began writing about it, sexual harassment has become a household word and a topic of concern for employers and employees, and despite very little research funding, there is now a fair amount of data on this topic. Sexual Harassment in the Workplace provides a comprehensive look at what we know about sexual harassment. Editor Margaret S. Stockdale and a multidisciplinary cast of contributing authors have produced a volume that is grounded in theory, research, and practice but is accessible to researchers, advanced students, and practitioners in multiple disciplines. The topic of sexual harassment is one that is extremely timely and relevant for today's students in women's studies, organizational studies, and sociology. Sexual Harassment in the Workplace deals with a variety of issues and aspects of sexual harassment that will certainly spark discussion and debate.
