This book is designed to bring together material on an issue that is currently troubling most workplaces and schools in the United States: the problem of how to deal with a distressing increase in sexual harassment claims in all areas of American life. It does not attempt to answer all of the questions of how best to prevent sexual harassment while preserving the rights of the accused - no book can provide such answers; rather, it is designed to provide readers with a variety of material to begin the journey of discovering these answers for themselves.
