Globally, rates of sexual violence remain unacceptably high, with disproportionate effects on women and girls. While most scholars and practitioners uniformly concur about the scope of the problem, there is currently little agreement about how to prevent sexual violence before it occurs.
Drawing on diverse disciplines such as criminology, education, health promotion, law, psychology, social work, socio-legal studies, sociology and women's studies, this book provides the first interdisciplinary collection on the primary prevention of sexual violence. The volume addresses the key causes or determinants of sexual violence, including cultural attitudes, values, beliefs and norms, as well as systemic gender-based inequalities that create the conditions underlying much violence against women. Including contributions from internationally renowned experts in the field, the volume critically investigates the theoretical underpinnings of prevention work, describing and analysing the limits and possibilities of primary prevention strategies 'on the ground'. The chapters collectively examine the role that structural violence and gender inequality play in fostering a 'culture' of sexual violence, and reflect on the relationship between macro and micro levels for understanding both sexual violence perpetration and prevention.
This book will be a key resource for scholars, practitioners and policymakers involved in the fields of sexual violence prevention, education, law, family violence, and child sexual abuse.

Sexually transmitted infections are arguably the single most serious problem in human health, particularly in the tropics. AIDS has reached epidemic proportions and easily curable infections often go untreated, with serious long-term consequences. Written by a team of experts, this book gives clear, concise, and up-to-date information on all aspects of sexually transmitted infections and will be useful for anyone involved in the management, control or research on these diseases.

Christian Holiness & Human Sexuality is a study guide for Episcopalians who want to understand how all Christian people can exercise their baptismal vocation in the fullness of their sexual identity. This short booklet attempts to frame the discussion in a way different from how it has been addressed in many of the debates in our church and culture: How can we as Christians combine sexual expression with Christian holiness? Looked at afresh, what guidance do the Christian biblical, historical, theological, ethical, and liturgical traditions give us in answer to this question?
