about this item

Sex Crimes & Sex Offenders: Theory, Research & Realities provides an overview of social scientific theory and research on sex crimes and sex offenders. Most other books on the market are focused on a single issue—such as treatment, ******, pedophilia, theory, etc. This unique book will cover current theory and research along with individual cases of sex crimes (e.g., Kobe Bryant, Jerry Sandusky, and other case studies), effectively linking theory and research with the realities of sex crimes and sex offenders as well as their victims. Vandiver, Braithwaite, and Stafford are careful to dispel myths and to focus on the heterogeneity of crimes and offenders, and not on any one issue, population, or theory. Instead they weave a framework using a full range of theoretical concepts and research data to integrate their discussions of crimes, offenders, victims, treatments, and policy implications. Sex Crimes & Sex Offenders is designed for undergraduates and early graduate students in Criminal Justice, Criminology, and Sociology programs in the US as well as other English-speaking countries.
