The Juvenile Sex Offender (Second edition)


396 pages, published in 1993, 2005

While there has been an extraordinary amount of published research and theory on sexual assault by adult male offenders, little has been written about the juvenile or adolescent offender. Filling in a gap in the literature, this comprehensive volume provides a detailed examination of the juvenile offender and what is known about the development of sexually assaultive behavior.
