Drs. Gary & Ruth Namie have written a new and substantially updated and enhanced edition of The Bully at Work: What You Can Do to Stop the Hurt and Reclaim Your Dignity on the Job (Sourcebooks, 2nd ed., 2009). Although marketed as something of a self-help book, The Bully at Work is grounded in research and evidence, and it serves as an ideal introduction to this topic for laypersons, employment relations professionals, and researchers alike.
The book is published in an affordable trade paperback format. Here’s a link to Amazon.com, where you can peruse the table of contents and index, as well as look at sample pages: http://www.amazon.com/Bully-Work-2E-Reclaim-Dignity/dp/1402224265/.
