Publisher Comments:

There is no more seemingly incorrigible criminal type than the child sex offender. Said to suffer from a deeply rooted paraphilia, he is often considered as outside the moral limits of the human, profoundly resistant to change. Despite these assessments, in much of the West an increasing focus on rehabilitation through therapy provides hope that psychological transformation is possible. Examining the experiences of child sex offenders undergoing therapy in Germanyand#151;where such treatments are both a legal right and dutyand#151;John Borneman, in Cruel Attachments, offers a fine-grained account of rehabilitation for this reviled criminal type.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;

Carefully exploring different cases of the attempt to rehabilitate child sex offenders, Borneman details a secular ritual process aimed not only at preventing future acts of molestation but also at fundamentally transforming the offender, who is ultimately charged with creating an almost entirely new self. Acknowledging the powerful repulsion felt by a public that is often extremely skeptical about the success of rehabilitation, he challenges readers to confront the contemporary contexts and conundrums that lie at the heart of regulating intimacy between children and adults.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

What motivates sexual abusers? Why are so few caught? Drawing on the stories of abusers, Anna C. Salter shows that sexual predators use sophisticated deception techniques and rely on misconceptions surrounding them to evade discovery. Arguing that even the most knowledgeable among us can be fooled, Salter dispels the myths about sexual predators and gives us the tools to protect our families and ourselves.

Anna Salter does an exceptional job in dispelling the myths of who and what a sexual predator is. Whether a professional or layperson, one can recognize with dismay that the predator she speaks of may well be that very "nice" person next door, at work or in the park with your children. Predators have certain commonalities, the least of which is the ability to deceive those whom they target. We forget that "niceness" is a learned social skill and not a character trait, indicative of the inner person. It is a skill predators use outwardly to hide who they really are. Anna is brutually honest in sharing what we know and what we don't about the causes and cures for these predators and addresses many of the myths and misinformation commonly accepted as truth. This is not a book for the sqeamish. It is an important book for anyone in the field of treatment or seeking to understand more about these predators.
