Understanding Elder Abuse in Minority Populations is an especially valuable and unique contribution to the field because most of the chapters are written by minority researchers and based upon studies within their own indigenous communities across the United States. Major sections of the book deal with specific racial/ethnic populations: African American, Hispanic, Asian American, and Native American. The book concludes with discussions of the overall impact of elder abuse on all populations, culturally specific outreach programs, and a synthesis of current knowledge on minority elder abuse. An authoritative resource, Understanding Elder Abuse in Minority Populations is for all caregivers dealing with minority elders.

Female-Perpetrated Sex Abuse is a groundbreaking study into gender, sexuality and victimhood. It examines the cultural conditions of possibility for FSA victimhood as a means to advance contemporary critical understandings of the role of gender and sexuality as instruments of modern power. As the first direct exploration of FSA victimhood, this book analyses: why victims of FSA remain so underexplored and invisible as objects of human science knowledge; the limited and overly rigid discourses in local and global psychological theory and practice that continues to treat particular subjects as ‘victim worthy’ through paradigms that construct victimhood as gendered; and the possibility of new discourses that could disrupt normative understandings of gender, sexuality, and power in sex abuse, and as constitutive to the beginnings of a counter-knowledge on transgressive sexualities. By tracing the historical and cultural conditions of the emergence of FSA broadly and FSA victimhood specifically, Kramer illustrates how deeply engrained constructions of gender and sexuality both produce and constrain the possibilities for reporting, disclosing and self-identifying victimhood. Female-Perpetrated Sex Abuse is essential reading for academics, researchers and students alike, in the areas of psychology, sociology, gender studies, criminology, counselling and social work.
