New book: Children, Sexuality, and the Law

 

9780814723852_FullIn the newly released book Children, Sexuality, and the Law, Professors Ellen Marrus and Sacha M. Coupet take on the challenging and often taboo subject of the way our legal system treats children and sex. The text approaches the subject through diverse perspectives of psychology and legal theory, dealing with issues like adolescent consent and First Amendment expression. Children, Sexuality, and the Law is the first book of its kind, and takes the conversation beyond traditional thought of children as victims of adult sexual deviance, exploring the concept of children as “agents and rights holders in the realms of sex, sexuality, and sexual orientation.” You can find the full review and order the book at http://nyupress.org/books/9780814723852/
