New Book Published: Sexual Harassment

I received copies of my book, Sexual Harassment: A Reference Handbook yesterday.  As you can imagine, I was overwhelmed with current news while writing this, but it is a reference book. (That means I do not give my opinion of certain people, but
I can include their words and behavior.) The book includes a brief history of sexual harassment and analysis, as well as a glossary, timeline, and resources. There is also one chapter of wonderful essays by women who have experienced sexual harassment. A couple of names you may have seen here on WordPress. If you read this book and feel inclined to give it a positive review, I would appreciate it. Of course, that holds true for any of my books! I know that the reference books are expensive, but when this current situation is over, please do consider recommending this book to your local public or school library. It would also be suitable for various resource centers.

 

The cats had to check out my new book, though of course, the box was much more interesting to them.  

Some people have already seen this news on Instagram or Twitter, but some people only follow me here, so I apologize for the cross-posting.

New Book: Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence

Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence, edited by Merril D. Smith

 

It’s here! I SO wish a book like this was not necessary, but unfortunately, it is. I am proud of the effort that my contributors and I have put into it. And seeing one’s book in print never gets old. The Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence contains twenty long-form entries covering various aspects of rape and sexual violence, both within the U.S. and also the rest of the world. I wrote some of the entries, as well as editing all of them. The book also includes a primary documents section and a list of resources for both the U.S. and many other nations. Your library should probably have a copy.
