Winner of the Association for Women In Psychology 2006 Distinguished Publication Award!

The past two decades have witnessed a significant shift in how rape is understood in Western societies. This shift in perception has revealed the startling frequency of occurrences of date rape, obscuring the divide between rape and what was once just sex. Just Sex? combines an overview of the existing literature with an analysis of recent research to examine the psychological and cultural implications of this new epidemic. The result is the conclusion that feminist theory on sexual victimisation has gone both too far and not far enough. The reader is presented with a challenging and original perspective on the issues of rape, sex and the body, incorporating subjects including:

* rape as a social problem
* the social constructionism of sex, subjectivity and the body
* heterosexuality under the microscope

This book succeeds in making a valuable contribution to feminist and social contructionist work on rape that will be of interest to those studying psychology, gender studies, cultural studies and sociology.

Just Sex? The Cultural Scaffolding of Rape was selected as a 2005 winner of AWP's (Association for Women in Psychology) distinguished publication award.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Nicola Gavey's book is a must-read for anyone involved in rape research, prevention and education, or clinical work. ... Her unique viewpoint on many of our favourite (and a few new) controversies in the field make for delicious reading. ... [Her] work does much to dismantle the master's scaffold by getting real about the tools of rape. It is the best book I have read on the topic in many years, and I expect it will find its way to most of your bookshelves.' - Patricia D. Rozee, California State University, in Psychology of Women Quarterly
