It is nonpolemical, lucid, and speaks eloquently not only to the victims of acquaintance rape but to all those caught in its net."--Philadelphia Inquirer "Painstakingly researched...chilling."--San Francisco Chronicle "A deeply disturbing study of date or acquaintance rape and the myths and cultural attitudes that encourage it....
