Harassment

This book, HARASSMENT: VICTIMS AND THEIR VICTIMIZERS, will attempt to expose the truth about the sources and reasons for the preponderance of sexual harassment in the workplace and academia. Harassment is a pervasive social problem directed mostly toward females of all ages and races by males of all races. The underlying causes of harassment are sexism and sexism-racism that have been established in this patriarchal society as the norm for the behavior of males. This “norm” is not normal; rather, it is a type of psychopathologic behavior that is dangerous. Actually, these occurrences may border on fascism within a democratic and liberal society.

Meg Antille works long hours on the charter cruise ship Far Horizon so she can send credits home to her family. Working hard to earn a promotion to a better post (and better pay), Meg has no time for romance. Former Special Forces soldier Red Thomsill only took the berth on the Far Horizon in hopes of getting to know Meg better, but so far she’s kept him at a polite distance. A scheduled stopover on the idyllic beach of a nature preserve planet may be his last chance to impress the girl. But when one of the passengers is attacked by a wild animal it becomes clear that conditions on the lushly forested Dantaralon aren’t as advertised – the ranger station is deserted, the defensive perimeter is down…and then the Far Horizon’s shuttle abruptly leaves without any of them. Marooned on the dangerous outback world, romance is the least of their concerns, and yet Meg Continue reading Star Cruise: Marooned
