"The gravity of the problem of human sexual violence has driven the enactment of numerous federal and state laws designed to manage sex offenders. Although such laws are very expensive to implement, their efficacy remains unknown. Careful scientific investigations in the area of human sexual aggression are relatively new, but there have been significant achievements within the last decade. This volume results from a conference that was specifically designed to examine and evaluate the current efforts to manage sex offenders and to provide informed recommendations and guidance for research, legislation, and discretionary decisions within the criminal justice system. Papers are contributed by some 40 of the most accomplished scholars and researchers from a variety of disciplines. The authors discuss the state-of-the-art understanding of issues related to risk assessment, etiology, statutory management, remediation, and public policy"--JHU Press
