Gender Myths v. Working Realities

Using Social Science to Reformulate Sexual Harassment Law

Both the courts and the public seem confused about sexual harassment—what it is, how it functions, and what sorts of behaviors are actionable in court. Theresa M. Beiner contrasts perspectives from social scientists on the realities of workplace sexual harassment with the current legal standard. When it comes to sexual harassment law, all too often courts (and employers) are left in the difficult position of grappling with vague legal standards and little guidance about what sexual harassment is and what can be done to stop it. Often, courts impose their own stereotyped view of how women and men “ought” to behave in the workplace. This viewpoint, social science reveals, is frequently out of sync with reality. As a legal scholar who takes social science seriously, Beiner provides valuable insight into what behaviors people perceive as sexually harassing, why such behavior can be characterized as discrimination because of sex, and what types of workplaces are more conducive to sexually harassing behavior than others. Throughout, Beiner offers proposals for legal reform with the goal of furthering workplace equality for both men and women.

The Los Angeles Times called him a "counterculture icon," and TV Guide dubbed him one of "TV's Ten Most Powerful Stars," but true aficionados simply call him "The Hoff." Don't Hassel the Hoff follows David Hasselhoff's phenomenal career, from his earliest childhood role in Peter Pan to his latest adventure, starring in Mel Brooks's Tony award-winning musical, The Producers. There is no better time to celebrate Hasselhoff's life and a career that continues to grow and thrive. As the star of the extremely popular classic television shows, "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider," Hasselhoff is an international mega-star, with platinum album sales and starring roles on Broadway and London's West End. As this fascinating memoir reveals, there's more to this handsome superstar than great hair, and legs that look good while running down a beach. "The Hoff" is also a smart, caring man with a huge heart. "This book is my opportunity to print something from my heart, to tell the truth about what happened to me on the long and winding road from Baltimore to Baywatch to Broadway – and beyond. And the truth is not to be found in tabloid stories but in my actions: I am a good father and tried to be a good husband. I love people and the emotional rollercoaster that goes with human relationships. I love all the bewildering, crazy and wonderful things that life has to offer. This book is about my successes and my failures, my strengths and my weaknesses. And, above all, it is about the hope contained in the Knight Rider slogan: "One man can make a difference." --David Hasselhoff Full of behind-the-scenes looks at Hasselhoff's television series, celebrations of his proudest moments, and the truths about his struggles with relationships and alcohol, Don't Hassel the Hoff is both highly entertaining and deeply personal, making this an engrossing page-turner from start to finish. Long live "The Hoff."

German description: "Whistleblowing" - wohl kein anderer englischsprachiger Rechtsbegriff kann in den letzten Jahren auf eine vergleichbare Karriere sowohl in der offentlichen Diskussion und internationalen Wirtschaftspraxis als auch der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft und Rechtspolitik zuruckblicken.Simon Gerdemann geht den Ursprungen und Hintergrunden des modernen Whistleblowingrechts in den USA aus historischer, empirischer und rechtsdogmatischer Perspektive auf den Grund. Er zeigt auf, wie Whistleblowing uber Landes- und Rechtsgebietsgrenzen hinweg seinen Weg nach Deutschland gefunden hat, welche aktuellen Folgen seine Diskussion und Adaption fur das deutsche Arbeits-, Gesellschafts-, Datenschutz- und Verwaltungsrecht haben und wie man die Erfahrungswerte aus 150 Jahren der Geschichte des Whistleblowingrechts in den USA nutzen kann, um die Zukunft des Whistleblowings in Deutschland sinnvoll zu gestalten.
