This text is contributed by well-known researchers in the field and serves as an important resource to provide scholars with up-to-date research on sexual victimization. The book approaches the concept through three separate sections Section I: Chapters 1 through 4 will address how the criminal justice system handles sexual victimization. Section II: Chapters 5 through 9 will address the association between individuals in a relationship and sexual assault. Finally, Section III: Chapters 10 through 13 will address unusual and special issues associated with contemporary sexual victimization. This approach offers students and scholars a comprehensive examination of the sexual victimization issues and challenges currently facing the criminal justice system in the past and today. 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. At the end of each chapter several discussion questions will be provided. These questions could be assigned as homework for students or used for in-class discussions of the readings
