Overview

Sexual harassment is one of the most controversial social and political issues facing men and women today. Public awareness of the issue - building steadily since the advent of the contemporary women's movement - has sky-rocketed in the wake of Anita Hill's accusations against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Numerous other highly visible cases, from the aftermath of the 1991 Tailhook Association Convention to Paula Jones's 1994 charges against President Bill Clinton, have kept sexual harassment in the public eye and have kindled ongoing debate over its definition, prevention, causes, and remedies. Sexual Harassment provides students, librarians, teachers, and other interested readers with a concise and objective introduction to this complicated and still-evolving topic. The book examines all sides and viewpoints in the sexual harassment controversy and sheds light on many of its ambiguities. In addition, the book includes: an historical survey of the topic; chronology of significant events, including court cases; concise biographies of notable individuals; an annotated bibliography; a list of relevant organizations and agencies; a detailed index; and much more. Authoritative, accessible, and timely, Library in a Book: Sexual Harassment is the definitive one-stop reference to this volatile and challenging issue.
