Whilst there is considerable literature on rape from various perspectives, there is very little that focuses on rape committed by multiple perpetrators (also referred to as group or gang rape). For the first time, this handbook brings together international multi-disciplinary perspectives on multiple perpetrator rape.

The book is organised to provide readers with a comprehensive account of the thinking, theorising and empirical evidence on multiple perpetrator rape to date. Aspects covered include: different contexts in which multiple perpetrator rape occurs such as gangs, war, fraternities, South Africa; experiences of women and girls as victims and perpetrators; offence characteristics such as leadership and role taking, aggression and violence; the importance of group size; the prosecution of and treatment of offenders; and approaches to prevention.

The contributions to this collection are written by leading academics and practitioners from a variety of disciplines who bring together research and practice on multiple perpetrator rape by presenting new data from a strong theoretical and contextual base. This book will be a key text for students and academics studying multiple perpetrator rape and an essential reference tool for professionals working in the field including police officers, educationalists, forensic psychologists, youth workers, probation staff, lawyers, judges and policy makers.

Industry Reviews

Miranda Horvath and Jessica Woodhams have assembled an impressive array of material making innovative and prescient contributions when thinking about and tackling the emergent problem of multiple perpetrator rape.

Professor Jennifer Brown, London School of Economics and Social Sciences, UK.

A brilliant collection of academic and practitioner views on a newly emerging, and highly interesting, research agenda. A very welcomed addition to a specialised area of sexual violence perpetration.

Dr. Afroditi Pina, Lecturer in Forensic Psychology, University of Kent, UK.
