This illuminating work on one of today's most provocative issues provides all the necessary information for careful, critical thinking about the concept of sexual harassment. Consisting mainly of two parts, it first traces the construction of the concept of sexual harassment from the originalpublic uses of the term to its definitions in the law, in legal cases, and in empirical research. It then analyzes philosophical definitions of sexual harassment and a number of issues that have arisen in the law, including the reasonable woman standard and whether same-sex harassment should beconsidered sex discrimination. Sure to spark intense discussion, this book explains a complex notion in a lucid and engaging manner appropriate for anyone broadly curious about the notion of sexual harassment.
Margaret A. Crouch is at Eastern Michigan University.

Editorial Reviews

"A definitive work... Crouch admirably accomplishes her purpose of clarifying the numerous controversial issues and conflicting perspectives that still plague the subject of sexual harrassment... She provides a well-versed and comprehensive examination of the topic from several differentdisciplinary perspectives. Although the issues are complex and Crouch's treatment subtle and sophisticated, her logic and prose are straightforward and graspable by undergraduate and lay readers who, along with experts in the field, will learn much from her exercise in clear analysis. Highlyrecommended at all levels."--Choice
