"Why do young people commit sexual crimes? What can we do about it? If you are seriously interested in these questions, read this book. I was encouraged to observe that the loose speculation that has long dominated thinking about adolescent sex offenders is increasingly being replaced by empirically supported arguments. The contributors are smart, disciplined, and compassionate. I learned a lot."--R. Karl Hanson, PhD, Corrections Research, Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada
"This second edition is a welcome and much needed contribution. The book comprehensively addresses the many recent advances in knowledge about the development and causation of juvenile sexual offending, as well as current approaches to risk assessment and treatment. It is invaluable for anyone who works with this population within the criminal justice system or the civil commitment system."--Greg S. Bal, JD, defense attorney
"A distinguished contribution to the literature on juvenile sexual offenders, edited by two eminent scholars. This second edition will be an indispensable resource for professionals working in this field."--Robert Prentky, PhD, Justice Resource Institute, Boston, MA
