The book covers a lot of ground, ranging from international commercial sexual exploitation of children to abuse via the internet. Throughout the book, there are checklists that highlight important information about what to look out for and what to do. I felt that these were really useful and gave appropriate and current information, which could be easily accessed.
The Seduction of Children - a title that grabs your attention. It is a well-written, well-researched book encapsulating all areas, challenging the myths surrounding the secrecy of CSA (Child Sexual Abuse) and presents the facts and patterns of CSA- psychologically, socially, historically, culturally and from today... Overall, it is an emotive, revealing and honest book, with Sanderson all the while acknowledging that knowledge and beliefs around CSA vary enormously. It is worthwhile and valuable reading - for professionals and parents alike.
Any child care professional would gain useful knowledge from this informative book.
