"An eclectic collection of chapters which cover all aspects of scholarly understanding concerning sex offenders, Assessment and Treatment of Sex Offenders: A Handbook will prove invaluable to researchers, practitioners and students interested in furthering their understanding of this often complex offender group. "This book will prove an essential text to professionals and students who are involved in the study of, assessment, treatment and/or management of sex offenders. A book which covers the area so comprehensively has been a significant omission for some time, and thus this text is timely and fulfils a significant gap in the academic market." –Professor Jane L. Ireland, University of Central Lancashire
