    Abstract

    Overall, this text is a comprehensive treatment of the subject of rape investigation and provides a good view of relevant research on the topic. As such, it is an excellent choice for those involved in rape investigations. The first three chapters dealing with Public Beliefs, Police Attitudes and Beliefs, and Victims' Perspectives should be particularly useful to working investigators. The authors' treatment of victimology should assist the reader to identify conlinon myths, sterotypes, and confounding attitudes. Inclusion of this critical material in this book raises it above other investigative works and offers the potential to reduce subjectivity among investigators, which can provide direct effects on the efficacy of rape investigative methods. This is particularly so for the nonseasoned investigator.
