This volume is the first book in the field devoted to the abuse of boys. The authors focus on the male's socialization and victimization and the results of various forms of sexual abuse of male children. Although they do not claim that male children are at equal risk to female children, they do point out that male stereotyping can have specific, long-term consequences for the male victim. Breaking new ground by presenting a broader view of male sexual victimization, they introduce a new concept, the abuse of sexuality, to help explain many of the social and sexual problems exhibited by males. Finally, an explicit model for formulating a treatment plan which utilizes a systematic multi-remedial evaluation for both adult males and male children is presented and clinical issues within the use of this model discussed.
