Editorial Reviews

"Although the topic of male rape is receiving increasing research interest in the forensic, clinical and social psychological literature, there are currently very few academic texts relating to this issue. I applaud Dr. Abdullah-Kahn for under-taking this timely and potentially very useful book."
Dr. Michelle Davies, Senior Lecturer of Psychology, University of Central Lancashire, UK
