Overview

Rape remains one of the most controversial and emotionally charged issues within criminal justice and receives high-profile coverage internationally. Despite many changes in the law, practice and procedure in the investigation of rape allegations, victims continue to be routinely blamed for their victimization. Further, only a very small number of perpetrators ever face prosecution, let alone conviction.

This book aims to take stock of current thinking and research about rape and the way it is handled in practice within the criminal justice system, and to challenge some of the widely held but inaccurate beliefs. It brings together leading researchers in the field from psychology, sociology and law, considering the latest research and presenting new data from a strong theoretical and contextual base.

The main focus of this book is on adult victims of rape, with chapters exploring such issues as the media, the use of alcohol and drugs, police decision making, conviction patterns, and interviewing victims.
