Workplace bullying is a notable contemporary social sickness.

Interestingly, my book is listed near Professor Ken Westhues' The Envy of Excellence: Administrative Mobbing of High-Achieving Professors (2004). I have to say, this was a feature of bullying/mobbing in the institute to which I refer in Barsteadworth College, where lecturers who pursued excellence, were liked by the students and had successful creative/research careers beyond the institution, were targeted (or 'mobbed', to use Ken Westhues' terminology).
