Rape: The Misunderstood Crime: The Misunderstood Crime

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.

Description

Rape is probably the most misunderstood of violent crimes. The dynamics related to both rapists and rape victims are explored in this volume, which dispels many mistaken beliefs about rape by synthesizing current research from a psychological perspective.

Among the topics explored are: that only a very small proportion of rapists are ever convicted; that when an accusation of rape is made, it is the victim who too often becomes the focus of attention; and that while the stereotype of the rapist as a madman, a stranger to the victim, is still prevalent, most rapes are committed by someone known to the victim.
