The Sexual Abuse of Children

Recognition and Redress

Edited by: Yorick Smaal, Andy Kaladelfos, Mark Finnane

How can we seek justice and redress for the sexual abuse of children and better prevent the occurrence of such abuse?~This work brings together the thoughts on this question advanced by leading scholars, from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, from around the world. These thinkers - some also professional practitioners - provide new perspectives on sanctioned and informal responses to abuse in religious, educational and total institutions, as well as to abuse carried out in non-institutional settings. The Sexual Abuse of Children will be a valuable resource for researchers, students and those who deal with related issues in professional contexts.
