Overview

This book is based on major research projects in Britain, Canada and Australia on the meaning, nature and impact of child sexual abuse. Theoretical perspectives include a consideration of the contextualisation of knowledge about child abuse; how sexual abuse may be embedded within other types of family pathology; and a feminist perspective on patriarchy and adolescent prostitution. The book also contains an important chapter with new data on male sexual offenders, and on men and women who kill children.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Addresses the complexities of understanding, preventing, and treating child sexual abuse (CSA) and associated family dysfunctions. Eleven chapters by specialists from Britain, Canada, and Australia present recent studies and controversies concerning concepts and policies, clinical practice, adolescent outcomes, social work, and offenders. Theoretical perspectives include the contextualization of knowledge about CSA; a feminist view of patriarchy and child prostitution; and a humanistic consideration of men who commit suicide when accused of CSA. CEDR is the U. of Southampton's Centre for Evaluative & Developmental Research. Includes a substantial reference list. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
