Sex Crimes: Patterns and Behavior Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


The ongoing concerns about sex crimes continue to pique interest in related issues, research, and therapies. Like the popular first edition, the revision of Sex Crimes offers a comprehensive survey of sex offenders and offenses. The long-awaited Second Edition includes coverage of the psychological profiling of sex offenders, the often ritualistic crimes they commit, and the effect their actions have on victims. The highly praised writing style engages studentsÆ interest with a unique approach to sex crimes, deviance, and criminal behavior theory and analysis. First person accounts from sex offenders enliven the research discussions surrounding the motivations for this deviant behavior and the impact of treatments. The second edition has four new chapters which expand on the previous coverage of child and adult pornography on the Internet, prostitution, incest, pedophilia, and reflections of victims of sexual assault.

Students, educators, counselors and policy makers alike will find this a fascinating and ideal resource to access the core perspectives and complex aspects underlying our understanding and prevention of sex crimes.
