Sex Crimes, Predators, Perpetrators, Prostitutes, and Victims offers a comprehensive criminological and sociological examination of sexual criminality in America. It joins a growing body of research that, in recent years, has focused on the study of sex crimes and their dynamics apart from general crimes. However, unlike most such literature that often explores specific types of predatory sex-related crimes such as incest or rape, or sexual exploitative crimes such as prostitution and child pornography, this book studies the broad range of sex crimes as both a distinct classification of crime and as individual sex offenses. It examines in depth sexual criminality, its nature, characteristics, dimensions, and ramifications in American society. Within this context, the book will address both recognized and little-known sex crimes, the magnitude of such crimes, sex offenders and victims, theories on sexual criminality and sex criminals and the criminal justice system. The purpose of this book is to bridge the gap of existing works on sexual criminality, examine the relevant issues and dimensions of sex crimes, criminals, and victims, and shed new light on the study and implications of sex-related criminal behavior. The intended audience includes the academic and professional community in the disciplines of criminology, sociology, sexology, criminal justice, social science, psychology, psychiatry, penology, medicine, human sciences, child sexual abuse, child welfare, women’s studies, and victimology. It is also recommended reading for sex crime survivors and intelligent laypersons with an interest in sexual criminality and its implications for the individual and society.
