This introductory chapter begins with a review of data on sex offenses and sex offenders in the United States over the past twenty years and a discussion of the “emerging criminal war on sex offenders.” It then sets out the purpose of the book, which is to examine laws aimed at reducing the incidence of sexual offending from three perspectives: psychology, law, and public policy. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
