Sexual Victimization: Then and Now provides scholars easy access to information that specifically examines the continuum of sex crimes and the perception of victims by our criminal justice system and society as a whole. This text features contributions from well-known researchers in the field and serves as an important resource to provide scholars with up-to-date research on sexual victimization that will educate students on this complex and evolving challenge for the criminal justice system. Editors Tara N. Richards and Catherine D. Marcum approach the concept by examining how the criminal justice system handles sexual victimization, the association between individuals in a relationship and sexual assault, and unusual and special issues associated with contemporary sexual victimization. By discussing these issues, the theoretical explanations for these crimes and the effectiveness of the policy that has been applied will effectively link the criminological areas of theory, research, and policy.

What is really happening behind closed doors on America's college campuses? A new sexual revolution is roiling this country, and college students are on the frontlines, rallying around a new set of slogans: "Yes Means Yes," "We Believe You," "It's Never Her Fault." Fighting over the very definitions of rape, assault, and consent, students and administrators are locked in a confrontation that seems impossible to resolve. When casual sex, online dating, and alcohol-fueled parties dominate the social lives of many college students, it's hard to understand what rules -- if any -- control dating and sex. The outcome of this debate will redefine how we think about sex and gender in America. Vanessa Grigoriadis offers the first investigation into why this debate emerged, how it is evolving, and where it may lead us. Her account draws on detailed firsthand reporting, as she embeds at schools both large and small and talks candidly with dozens of students. With clarity and fresh insight, she weighs the accounts of survivors and the accused, and hears from activists, parents, and administrators. The sum of her fascinating, fly-on-the-wall research is a revelatory account of how long-standing codes of sex and power are being rewritten from scratch.

For many students, coeducational college campus life is marred by traumatic experiences of sexual assault. While there are many social determinants of rape and attempted rape, this work examines the pivotal role of male peer support in legitimizing the sexual assault of women. The authors use extensive prior studies together with their own investigations, including a national representative study and local campus victimization surveys carried out in the United States and Canada.

Since the first edition of Male Victims of Sexual Assault was published in 1992 there have been significant developments in our understanding of the prevalence and characteristics of the sexual assault of men. The first edition was influential in affording legal recognition to male victims of rape in England and Wales and this has resulted in raised awareness of the problem and improved attitudes among all those responsible for dealing with the victims. This recognition has gone some way to breaking down the taboo, and has allowed the discussion to move on and address the important issues of prevention, care and treatment. The book reports on the first epidemiological study of male sexual victimization in Europe, challenges the prevailing stereotype of gay men as sexual predators, covers the topic of male rape in prisons, examines the link between early sexual victimization and later perpetration, describes how victims of sexual torture attempt to process and resolve such experiences, provides the historical and anthropological background to the subject, and examines the impact of the changes in legislation. Mezey and King are experienced forensic psychiatrists with longstanding interests in domestic and sexual violence. They present original research material, which makes a unique contribution to our knowledge about men's experiences of sexual victimization.
