    Abstract

    The purpose of this book is to provide a “single comprehensive reference” addressing “all the major facets” of rape as well as providing background information bridging the “gap among the may different professionals who are responsible for assessing and helping the rape victim.” The text is divided into six topics including: “Historical Perspectives and Legal Issues,” “The Assailant,” “Medical History, Examinations and Evidence Collection,” “Psychological Impact,” “Forensic Evaluation,” and “Treatment Considerations.” Although such a short volume (only 156 pages of text) cannot be comprehsnive, this book does provide a good, basic overview for professionals from varying disciplines.
