Abstract "An authoritative, balanced resource that examines the problem of sexual violence in our society, exploring the various factors that contribute to these crimes and the difficulty of prosecuting many offenses. It discusses who is being victimized, who is perpetrating the offenses, and what can be done (and is being done) to reduce rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. The volume also explores the role that both poor prosecutorial leadership and rape culture have played in facilitating sexual assault and abuse and how shifts in attitude and policy could work to prevent the assaults from occurring. One of the most valuable aspects of the book is that it surveys the history of rape and sexual assault in a manner that helps the reader identify key issues in an easy-to-understand fashion. In addition, the volume's Perspectives section presents a broad range of voices on important aspects of sexual assault and recovery, allowing crucial, diverse perspectives to round out the author's expertise"-- Provided by publisher.
