The third edition of Sexual Assault provides an update of the second edition that came out in 2009. Editors Reddington and Kreisel approach the topic of sexual assault in a unique way by examining it from a criminal justice perspective. In giving an overview of sexual assault, examining its victimology, discussing the sexual offender, and looking at the role the criminal justice system plays, this book presents a comprehensive and thoroughly informative study of the crime.

The Instructor's Resource Manual will be available electronically on a CD or via email. Please contact Beth Hall at to request a copy. A set of 118 PowerPoint slides will be available upon adoption of this book. Sample slides can be viewed or downloaded here. Email for more information.

The editors did a good job fitting together the different articles on this important subject in a relatively seamless manner. This well-written, straightforward book should be easily read and understood by anyone with an interest in the subject.Summing Up: Recommended."
