In 2003, the US Senate and Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), prompting a number of research projects that cumulatively began to broaden and deepen our understanding of this complex aspect of prison life. Risk Markers for Sexual Victimization and Predation in Prison contains the results of Dr. Warren and Dr. Jackson's study, and it extends the literature on prison rape in important and distinct ways. Their research, which encompasses the full continuum of sexual behavior among incarcerated individuals, succeeds in identifying multi-layered predictive models for different types of sexual behavior across and within genders. The process by which the authors came to their study design, their experiences while implementing it, and the nature and significance of their findings, represent the content of this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is an excellent example of all the correct ways to devise and develop a large research project through to the final reporting of results and discussion of the importance of the findings. As a teacher of research methods to graduate students, I now have lengthy and specific examples of the differences between a Result and a Discussion section of a dissertation. In the area of community research, this book explodes the myth that a researcher or evaluator knows what to inquire about on the basis of past research." -Leslie B. Rosen, PsycCRITIQUES

"Risk Markers for Sexual Victimization and Predation in Prison is the most important book on the sexual exploitation of incarcerated men and women ever written. Drs. Janet Warren and Shelly Jackson show how to use cutting-edge science to accurately identify which inmates will become predators and which will become prey. This remarkable work could and should go far in eliminating the disgrace of prison rape." - John Monahan, Shannon Distinguished Professor of Law, Psychology, and Psychiatric Medicine, University of Virginia

"Clinical Risk Assessment is a relatively new field and this book is of inestimable value in better understanding its application in the prison arena. In their exceptional work, Drs. Warren and Jackson identify several factors which serve as risk markers for the sexual victimization and/or predation of incarcerated offenders. You cannot read this book and fail to appreciate the expertise and dedication the authors bring to this complex and multifaceted topic." - Robert R. "Roy" Hazelwood, the Academy Group, Inc, Manassas, Virginia

"Warren and Jackson's landmark study of prison sex pulls back the curtain on one of the great untold stories of life in custody. The authors capture the complex interplay among various types of sex in prison. Their findings should have a profound impact on policies intended to bring order to prison life, to improve safety for inmates and staff, and to discipline coercive offenders." - Park Dietz, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
