This long-awaited follow up to Diana Russell's landmark book Sexual Exploitation (SAGE, 1984) examines the studies that have since been conducted on the incidence and prevalence of rape and child sexual abuse in the United States. The author evaluations consider the various definitions researchers have used, as well as the methodologies used for collecting data. The book answers the backlash criticism - from both feminists and anit-feminists - that reports of high sexual assault rates are exaggerated. Accurate information, the authors show, is vital to preventing these crimes, and this book is a 'must read' for those who study, educate, and help women and girls who are victims of sexual assault.
