Winner of the SLSA's 2017 Hart Socio-Legal Book Prize
Bullying and Behavioural Conflict at Work
The Duality of Individual Rights
Reviews and Awards
"Bullying and Behavioral Conflict at Work: The Duality of Individual Rights represents the very best in socio-legal scholarship, combining close doctrinal analysis and a sophisticated understanding of jurisdictional complexities with a rigorous empirical study of case law and the key agents - senior lawyers and senior managers - who implement the legal norms regulating behavioural conflict at work."
"Very few scholars could have reached this level of empirical and doctrinal sophistication. Professor Barmes does so with consummate skill, and in so doing, she has produced a work that will surely rank as one of the `classics' of the discipline." - Alan Bogg, University of Bristol Law School, Journal of Law and Society
"As well as the manifold lessons for policymakers and others charged with the implementation and operation of UK labour law, this book has a wider value in that it offers a rare and comprehensive insight into the way in which a particular area of law functions (or not) in its various guises... Barmes succeeds in bringing the experiences of workplace dispute and litigation to life... Overall, the book will be of undoubted value to all of those interested in law's operation - not just in the context of workplace rights - but beyond through its outstanding contribution to sociolegal studies." - Nicole Busby, Strathclyde Law School, Industrial Law Journal
