More About This Title Internet Sex Offenders
One of the most chilling aspects of our technological age is the seeming ease with which perpetrators can use the internet to commit sexual offenses. In this comprehensive, state-of-the science work, Michael C. Seto examines the use and contribution of the internet to sexual crimes including the creation and dissemination of child pornography, and online and offline solicitation efforts leading to contact offenses such as rape and sexual assault. He also investigates the impact of the internet on related issues such as statutory offending, “grooming” tactics, “sexting,” as well as the truth about “stranger danger” and the real risk to children of assault and abduction.
