Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Workplace bullying is receiving international attention as a growing problem affecting employee morale, customer satisfaction, and organizational results. What is bullying? Who does it? What encourages it? What can be done to prevent and manage it? This timely book by Professors Lipinski and Crothers provides a comprehensive and insightful look at the state of our knowledge about workplace bullying and how to address it. Bullying in the Workplace will help academics and managers to define bullying, develop and implement practical programs that prevent it, and intervene successfully when it does occur.  For researchers, it provides a foundation to build on in developing a better understanding of bullying and improving the means by which we can address it. For practitioners, it offers a comprehensive guide to issues ranging from identification and intervention to education and prevention. It is a must-read for anyone studying the phenomenon, as well as for all of us working on a daily basis to address it in our own organizations." -- Eugene W. Anderson, Ph.D., University of Miami

"Editors Liipinski (Middle Tennessee State Univ.) and Crothers (Duquesne Univ.) have complied a well-researched, comprehensive volume on workplace bullying. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." - G.E. Kaupins, Boise State University, CHOICE

"This is an extremely interesting and timely analysis. Who hasn’t been the victim of a bully at one time or another? When you think you’ve left something like this in your past, all of a sudden you are confronted with it again – only this time it’s an adult supervisor or colleague in the work environment. I’m not a psychologist but this book helped me with understanding the 'why' of this terrible behavior." -- Stewart C. Ross, Executive Director, Southeast Business Forums, LLC
