Any mental health professional working in the area of sexual abuse of children or adults should be thoroughly familiar with this book, now once again in print and available in paperback. Its academic style makes it difficult for the general public to read easily, but well educated non-professionals will find it worthwhile. In my own work with sexual abuse victims I draw heavily on this resource to help them answer the question, "Why did he rape me?"
-Dr. Lynn Daugherty, Bestselling Author of the Award Winning Classic Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now), Fourth Edition
this is a must for any student in the field of psychology. The case studies are worth the cost of the book It is broken down into section such as myth v realities of rape, Psychoynamicss of rape, (Worth the cost of the book) Clinical assessments of rape, patterns of rape, and guidelines and treatment of rape.
Once again, a must for the student, not complicated so the lay person can understand it.
The text is very useful in that is provides general classifications for the major types of rapists. It addresses the motivations inherent in each type. It explains the concept that rape is far less about sex than it is about anger, power or control. It uses clinical interviews with both perpetrators and victims to illustrate concepts.
It is a useful basic text. Published in 1979 there is some dating apparent in the language used, most especially in the interviews. But it is worth the money, for the paperback edition anyway.
