The first comprehensive book on rape since Susan Brownmiller's
Against Our Will and Susan Estrich's 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.
