As a former Police Chief, I know that important policy decisions regarding the establishment of comprehensive child protection strategies are often based upon a tragic case or anecdotal evidence that often ignores the scope and scale of the overall problem. The research conducted by these nationally recognized experts provides important insight into emerging threats to children and serves as a guide for developing an effective national response.
The factual information, practical methodologies, and expertise in this book can be used as a practical tool in combating the horror of the commercial sexual exploitation of children. The fact that this text is guided by internationally recognized child rights principles and documents gives one hope that change is possible in a world where exploitation of children is so prevalent. As a survivor and now activist, I encourage the government, professionals, and the public to care about this issue and be practical and humane in their approach to combating exploitation. This book provides us with that template.
With the emergence of the Internet and its worldwide expansion as a favored mode of communication, there is an ever-increasing avenue for the sexual exploitation of children. This informative publication, authored by acknowledged leaders in the field of forensic science, provides professionals working with child abuse victims, their families, and the suspected perpetrators with a wide range of forensic techniques and knowledge that will serve as an essential forensic reference.

In giving a broad scope of understanding about the sexual exploitation of children, this book delineates familial child sexual abuse and commercial sexual exploitation. Its international perspective suggests that the causes are broader than defined by western countries and therefore prevention foci need to be tailored accordingly. While giving information on offender motives and treatment, it emphasizes the victim as blameless, a view that continues to need reinforcement. The detailed nature of the book and the number of worthy contributors reiterate its use as a text for all manner of helping professionals.

The subject matter is disturbing, but this is a must-read resource book for professionals working in the field of child maltreatment in the 21st century. The contents provide a comprehensive review of research, current programs, and concepts that address intervention, investigation, and prevention.

Medical, Legal, & Social Science Aspects of Child Sexual Exploitation is a rare and welcome departure from the "same old, same old" of recent years and is truly new and innovative. This book is the first to provide in-depth coverage of an emerging and serious global issue. The authors and editors are well-qualified to address the complex social, psychological, and legal issues presented by child sexual exploitation.

This text brings to light the necessary role of interagency collaboration in child exploitation cases while providing direct guidance through case study and lessons of necessary considerations, benefits and limitations of emerging tools, and strategies for the investigation, proper assessment, and ongoing management of perpetrators.
Very worthwhile and a must-read for law enforcement and other professionals involved in identifying, rescuing, and treating victims of child sexual exploitation. This book allows the reader to better understand how and why individuals use the computer to facilitate the sexual exploitation of children.

From JAMA: Medical, Legal, and Social Science Aspects of Child Sexual Exploitation is a daunting two-volume set. Its five editors include a professor of social science (Estes), an attorney (Vieth) and three physicians. The 52 nationally and internationally known contributors represent government, law enforcement, psychiatry, social service, research, the judiciary, psychology, forensic nursing, public education, postal inspection, service units (Child Assessment Centers), sex offender assessment, and survivors.
... As the authors of the chapter on commercial sexual exploitation state, “In the past half century, and particularly in the past few years, enormous growth has occurred in the recognition, assessment and treatment of harmful sexual behavior” (p 290). This statement is substantiated by the scope and comprehensiveness of this excellent text.
Charles F. Johnson, MD
I found that book's coverage of this topic is sophisticated yet accessible, such that I found myself quoting parts of it to my colleagues and students because of the depth and breadth of information contained herein ... The editors and chapter authors achieve a strong and sensitive balance between the need to know and people's natural aversion to the topic, and they manage to present a timely, globally focused view of the intertwined issues. Anyone working with children in any capacity should be familiar with the ways CSE has been and continues to be a national and international concern.
