This book is an invaluable resource to anyone who wishes to understand and/or advance current approaches to workplace bullying and related threats to employee well-being. Prior to Cobb's work, researchers and activists were hard-pressed to develop any kind of comprehensive overview of health and safety issues related to bullying, violence, harassment, discrimination and stress around the world, and as a result, we were relegated to working without a deeper understanding of international progress (and challenges) thus far.... landmark work.
In this comprehensive and timely resource, Ellen Cobb has made a significant contribution to the field of worker health and safety. Still vastly under-reported and misunderstood, workplace bullying, violence, harassment, discrimination and stress continue to wreak havoc on the vitality and prosperity of organizations and individuals alike.
