Oren Bar-Gill. Seduction by contract : law, economics, and psychology in consumer markets. 1st ed. Oxford University Press, 2012.

K3842.B37 2012

 

Seduction by Contract explains how consumer contracts emerge from the interaction between market forces and consumer psychology and argues that better legal policy can help consumers and enhance market efficiency. Developing its explanation through a general framework and detailed case studies of three major consumer markets (credit cards, mortgages, and cell phones), Seduction by Contract is an accessible introduction to the law and economics of consumer contracts, and a powerful critique of current regulatory policy.

 

 

Ronald D. Brown. Dying on the job : murder and mayhem in the American workplace. Rowan & Littlefield Publishers, 2012.

HF5549.5.E43B76 2012

 

Dying on the Job is the first book on workplace violence to focus exclusively on workplace murder. While some perpetrators are certainly mentally impaired, many workplace murders are committed by people considered to be “normal.”  Author Ronald Brown explores the various motives and drives that spark workplace murder, and answers hundreds of questions that are usually asked only after a workplace murder rampage has already occurred. Brown also addresses different areas of prevention, counseling, and rehabilitation, and analyzes different approaches to gun control for both management and employees to make their job a safer place to work.
