Neville has worked as an educator and arbitrator for both sides of the issue, for Fortune 500 companies and individuals alike. Using case studies, statistics, and revealing anecdotes, she shows how this struggle has reached epidemic proportions and has imposed high cost on society -- costs reflected in lost jobs, lost wages, lost corporate profits, and rising aggravation. This book is sure to spark a national debate about sexual harassment.

Praise for Internal Affairs. "Anything that closes down a working person's sense of opportunity--especially sexual harassment and discrimination--cuts off the main energy flow of the organization. Neville shows us that overall corporate responsibility begins with providing a sense of well-being for every single employee."--Gail Blanke, President and CEO of Lifedesigns, and author of In My Wildest Dreams. "Neville's inside look at what's going on in Corporate America shows the limits of the ability of courts and rules of law to control sexual harassment on the job. At the same time, she presents steps that employers can put to immediate and practical use so as to avoid litigation."--Burke Marshall, Professor Emeritus, Yale Law School. "Internal Affairs gives us our first hard look inside the lives of real people affected by sexual misconduct in the workplace."--Karel R. Amaranth, Executive Director, Victims Services. "We've made a bad show about how to deal with [sex and the workplace] at the close of the twentieth century; it is extremely important that we use common sense, human nature, and wisdom to get this right for the twenty-first century. Kathleen Neville leads the way."--Edith Weiner, Trend Analyst and President, Weiner, Edrich, Brown, Inc.
