Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Psychologist
[P]owerful, disturbing, and challenging; it makes us open our eyes when we might well otherwise prefer to keep them closed.
Booknews
Investigates the effects of male-on-male sexual violence on individuals and society, dispelling myths and questioning why most communities cannot or will not confront the problem. Offers interviews with gay and straight survivors, an analysis of depictions of male rape in popular media, case studies, and suggestions for initiating change. For counselors, activists, and general readers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Kerry Lobel
The rape crisis movement is more than twenty-five years old, yet there are few resources available to support the survivor of male on male rape in his recovery and few materials to guide those with the responsibility for providing him with services. Written from the perspective of a rape survivor and advocate in the movement to end sexual assault, Michael Scarce's Male on Male Rape: The Hidden Toll of Stigma and Shame is long overdue. . . . Michael Scarce takes us on an uncharted and unfamiliar road, with much respect and commitment to the journey. Scarce is at his best as the rape crisis counselor, helping us understand our feelings and navigating resources. The book shines its brightest as a guide for rape survivors and helping professionals.
