Product Description

Product Description

This annotated bibliography reviews scholarly work on acquaintance and date rape published in recent years. Acquaintance rape research has grown significantly since the mid-1980s, and it is often argued that acquaintance rape is a common occurrence, especially on college campuses. It is also argued that this type of sexual assault is very different from stranger rape, principally because of the socially defined and accepted nature of the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator. Works specifically on acquaintance or date rape are included, as well as earlier works that led to the emergence of the separate conceptual category of acquaintance rape. Each work is summarized, and the annotation includes a statement of the purpose, the method, and the major findings of the work. Separate chapters are devoted to the incidence of acquaintance rape; its social correlates; and its causes, effects, treatment, and prevention. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

“This is a thoughtful, useful, subject-specific bibliography that researchers and practitioners in psychology, social work, sociology, women's studies, and men's studies should welcome.”–ARBA 95

“Much of the research cited in this bibliography was conducted on college campuses, including studies that report an incident rate for attempted or completed acquaintance rape as high as twenty-five percent of the college women syrveyed. This makes Acquaintance and Date Rape an especially valuable reference resource for college collections. Both the introductory chapter, which provides an overview of the issues, and the annotations, which summarize the methodology and findings of the studies cited, can be of assistance to administrators developing programmatic responses to rape on campus, as well as to researchers and students concerned with the topic.”–Feminist Collections --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
