9781138937093: Sex Crimes and Sex Offenders: Research and Realities

Sex Crimes and Sex Offenders: Research and 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, rape, pedophilia, theory, etc. This book is unique in that it covers the most 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 sex crimes and sex offenders, and not on any one issue or 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. The result is a valuable resource for students and early-stage researchers investigating sex crimes or offenders.

Review:

Many books available only talk about one aspect of the sex offender, whether is a criminological or psychological theory that explains the behavior, or a psychological condition or illness the person suffers that makes their behavior unusual, or maybe even the different treatment modalities an offender may go through. This current book does all of that in a concise and clear way so that students can follow a path to understanding the material.―David F. Nicholson, Ferrum College

[Sex Crimes and Sex Offenders] will appeal to a broad audience of students who desire employment as social workers, law enforcement officers, probation and/or parole officers, case managers, etc. The inclusion of a discussion of crime investigation will make this book very attractive to budding criminal justice professionals―Lisa Sample, University of Nebraska Omaha

[This book] is one of the few I have seen that bridges the gap between sensationalized undergraduate material and more difficult, professional-oriented literature...it was easy to read and would be well suited for undergraduates.―Creaig Dunton, SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury

Sex Crimes and Sex Offenders provides a broad perspective of the most recent research findings and how they apply to the treatment and punishment of such offenders. Although it is a textbook geared for a sex crimes course, it is also a valuable resource to anyone who works with sex offenders. Anyone who works with sex offenders should have a copy of this book. The authors focus on the most up-to-date treatment and assessment tools that are applicable to sex offenders. The authors do an excellent job of identifying several special populations of sex offenders (juveniles, females, and those who offend in the context of their job) and the nuances involved in treating these offenders. Throughout the book, the authors examine myths that are common among laypersons and squarely examine the research to assess those false assumptions, leading the reader to a more realistic picture of sex offenders and their characteristics.―Aaron P. Pierce, Ph.D., Clinical Director, Clinical & Forensic Consulting Services, Waco, Texas
