Konrad Lorenz, an Austrian-German ethnologist, first used the word “mobbing” to describe a group of animals attacking a single animal, according to this book.

Mobbing is distinguished from other workplace abuse in this book partly by discussing other workplace abuse categories such as bullying, harassment, occupational hazing and scapegoating.

It says that mobbing is a system that supports abuse and leaves no individual to blame, that it is aggressive behavior aimed at expelling an intruder from the territory.

It also covers the history of American employment law and compares it to European and Scandinavian law. It says that Europe and Scandinavia have a finally tuned definition of the problem while, in the USA, mobbing is semi-sanctioned.

One reader wrote on Amazon, "This is a fantastic book. If you're being mobbed now, it will help you cope. If you have been mobbed, it will help you recover."

It has interviews with victims that shed light on the problem. It also has an overview of the literature and research about it and suggests strategies for dealing with it.
