The first comprehensive book on rape since Susan Brownmillers Against Our Will and Susan Estrichs Real Rape, this volume probes every aspect of rape law and the discrepancies between ideal law (on the books) and real law (in action). SusanMoreThe first comprehensive book on rape since Susan Brownmillers Against Our Will and Susan Estrichs Real Rape, this volume probes every aspect of rape law and the discrepancies between ideal law (on the books) and real law (in action). Susan Caringella canvasses the success and failure of reform in the United States, as well as Australia, Britain, Canada, and New Zealand, and assesses alternative perspectives on rape reform, making use of theoretical models, court cases and statistical data. She uniquely delineates a creative model for change while addressing the discretion that undermines efforts at change. This includes charging the accused and plea bargaining, confronting a lack of transparency and accountability in implementing law, and acquiring funding for such changes.
