  Handbook of Sexual Assault:
Issues, Theories, and Treatment of the Offender
(Applied Clinical Psychology)
by W.L. Marshall, D.R. Laws, H.E. Barbaree (Editor)
Published by Plenum Pub Corp.
Publication date: February 1990

Brent's notes: This is a crucial work on the subject; an excellent compilation of studies by different minds. I highly recommend it. Pay close attention to the essay in the Foreword about "Looking only where the light is..." I mean pay really close attention.

I use this book often because it presents many sides and useful interpretations of the very complex issue of sexual assault.

One of the chapters that I point out to anyone who reads it is Ch. 11: Sex Offenders; A Feminist Perspective. A nice quote from the second page into the chapter is "The unanswered question posed by feminists in not why some men rape, but why most men do not." You know, because men have testosterone poisoning. It's a real page turner, that chapter.

Book News, Inc., 03/01/90: Contributors (researchers and clinicians) address specific topics related to the assessment and treatment of sexual aggressors, as well as theories concerning the development and maintenance of such offending. The volume, taken as a whole, summarizes current understanding of the problem. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

  Men Who Rape: The Psychology of the Offender
by A. Nicholas Groth
Hardcover, 227 pages
Published by Plenum Pub Corp
Publication date: January 1980

Brent's notes: Excellent book, nice compilation of case studies. Good overview of typologies - see the review on the profiling shelf for this same book.

This is also the book that publishes research that Ressler and Douglas used to develop their serial killer typologies from. It presents the typologies in a much more useful, much more developed fashion. This book is also full of very insightfully chosen case studies.

RECOMMENDED TEXT FOR CP102, Rape Investigation I


Practical Aspects of Rape Investigation:
A Multidisciplinary Approach
(Practical Aspects of Criminal and Forensic Investigations)
by Robert R. Hazelwood (Editor), Ann Wolbert Burgess (Editor)
2nd Edition Hardcover, 391 pages
Published by CRC Press
Publication date: September 1,1995

Brent's notes: If I could have in my possession every article and every textbook written by Roy Hazelwood, then I could consider my reference resources vast. He is a brilliant profiler and has done some of the best applied research on sex crimes in this half century.

This compilation of works and research is a must have for any sex crimes investigator.

Their research is what lead me into the field myself, as an undergrad.

  Rape and Society : Readings on the Problem of Sexual Assault
(Crime & Society)
by Ronald J. Berger, Patricia Searles
Paperback, 305 pages
Published by Westview Pr
Publication date: March 1,1995

Book News, Inc., 09/01/95: There has been an explosion of books and articles on violence against women in recent years, many written from a feminist perspective, with rape the first such subject to receive extensive examination. Since the 1980s, incest, battery, and pornography have come to the forefront of investigators' concerns. The articles (and a handful of poems) collected here return to the focus on "rape as a paradigm for sexism in society." Chapters are divided into categories including feminist foundations for the study of rape and society; why men rape; and rape and the legal system. No index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
