"I would recommend this book. It is a useful text for anyone interested in current thinking around sex offender assessment and treatment. Its international perspective makes it different from other texts, covering many overlooked aspects of treatment and practice." ("The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice", 8 November 2013)"There are some features in "International Perspectives" that one will not find in other texts. There is an entire section on human rights and ethical issues as they apply to sex offender assessment and treatment. This section includes an excellent chapter by Levenson on the unintended consequences of American policies regarding sex offenders, a second on human rights issues involved in risk assessment, and another on ethical and legal issues involved in antiandrogen treatment of sex offenders... I know of no other text that provides the breadth of coverage and diversity of viewpoints found in "International Perspectives on the Assessment and Treatment of Sexual Offenders: Theory, Practice, and Research.""
