Introduction

This two volume offering is designed to provide the interested professional with a comprehensive, up-to-date, and authoritative examination of many facets of child sexual abuse (CSA). As editors, it is our intention to provide a wide range of perspectives on this controversial but pressing topic. We have been fortunate to have been able to enlist the help of outstanding scholars. We believe that the chapters in this book represent a broad cut of the issues and problems that pertain to CSA.
