Review of: Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault: A Forensic Handbook
A handbook should be portable, comprehensive and accessible to people on many levels, and in all respects this book succeeds. The topic of drug facilitated sexual assault (DFSA) has risen in our consciousness in the last few years, initially because of the scare propagated in the popular media about flunitrazepam (Rohypnol ®). While that drug turned out to account for only a handful of such cases, it brought attention to the larger problem of the use of alcohol and drugs to incapacitate a victim prior to sexual assault.
