New Book: Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence

Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence, edited by Merril D. Smith

 

It’s here! I SO wish a book like this was not necessary, but unfortunately, it is. I am proud of the effort that my contributors and I have put into it. And seeing one’s book in print never gets old. The Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence contains twenty long-form entries covering various aspects of rape and sexual violence, both within the U.S. and also the rest of the world. I wrote some of the entries, as well as editing all of them. The book also includes a primary documents section and a list of resources for both the U.S. and many other nations. Your library should probably have a copy.

  1. Congratulations, Merril. You’re right, if only we didn’t need such a resource, but we DO, and in light of (finally) the world opening their eyes to sexual violence and fighting against it, these volumes are imperative.

    • Aww–thanks so much, Candice! This is actually not a new edition, but a completely different book. This book is two-volumes with twenty long-form articles that cover the U.S/International, giving scope of the problem, controversies, possible solutions, etc. And there is a primary documents section at the end.

  2. Congratulations, Merril! I think you’re right. I’ve put it on my to-read (and buy) list. I’ll see about getting a copy to our local library, too.
    I wish a book like this wasn’t necessary, either, but appreciate the hard work you put in to give us this resource.
