The most important lesson learned about interpersonal violence in the past 20 years is the astonishingly high prevalence of sexual assault in American society. The extensiveness of unreported sexual assault has been repeatedly documented through the use of self-report data from well-constructed surveys of victims and perpetrators. In contrast, little has been learned about how to effectively reduce rates of sexual assault perpetration. Theoretically derived universal prevention programs targeted at adolescents are sorely needed.

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1997, Vol 42(10), 948. Reviews the book, Sexual Assault on the College Campus: The Role of Male Peer Support by Martin Schwartz and Walter S. DeKeserdy (see record 1997-97560-000). In this volume, two sociologists who are experts on date rape and violence discuss the high incidence of sexual assault on North American college campuses. They then present theories of male peer-support, which refer to the key role male social groups play in eventual violence toward women. They also analyze cultural and other contributing factors in campus rape, including the roles of alcohol, objectification of women, and narrow conceptions of masculinity. The volume concludes with recommendations for prevention of campus rape. This well-written, timely volume could be used readily as a supplemental work in classes on close relationships, gender, and the family.

(from the jacket) Misconceptions about college students' sexual practices abound. Some critics lament the demise of traditional dating in favor of casual sexual encounters. Yet, while the courtship approach to dating has fallen out of favor, most students still dream of finding soul mates and becoming involved in committed relationships. So what is the truth about sex in college? This text draws on recent research to examine just about every aspect of this subject. The book begins with general chapters that offer historical, cross-cultural, and theoretical perspectives on college students' sexual attitudes and behaviors. One chapter offers a framework for understanding the unique developmental perspective of young adults, while another explores the research methods used to study college students' sexual practices. Subsequent chapters cover: dating and intimacy on campus, the perspective of young adults about love, sexuality education and classes, and sexual orientation. The darker side of college sexuality is also examined in chapters centering on such topics as infidelity in college dating relationships, homophobia and sexual harassment on campus, sexual risk-taking and sexually transmitted infections, sexual problems and dysfunction among young adults, and sexual assault among college students.

Information on same-sex rape involving men is frequently absent in campus rape education and prevention programming because the general public and popular culture have traditionally viewed rape in a context of violence against women. Available medical and psychological literature indicates the need for expanded prevention, treatment, and research dealing with men who rape other men. Several initiatives in the areas of curriculum infusion, support, services, training, and public policy for addressing same-sex rape of men in campus communities are offered.
