About this book

Focusing on male-on-male rape, this book looks at the common myths surrounding this taboo issue, including the idea that 'men who rape other men must be homosexual' and that 'real men can't be raped'. It also reveals that men are not only raped in prison, as is commonly believed, and that they suffer similar trauma to female survivors of rape.

Reviews

'Although the topic of male rape is receiving increasing research interest in the forensic, clinical and social psychological literature, there are currently very few academic texts relating to this issue. I applaud Dr. Abdullah-Kahn for under-taking this timely and potentially very useful book.'

Dr. Michelle Davies, Senior Lecturer of Psychology, University of Central Lancashire, UK.
