About the Book

Robin Warshaw combines the results of the nationwide survey, funded by the National Institute for Mental Health, and scholarly perspectives with vivid first-person accounts to explain what date rape is, how it happens, and what we can do about it. She fully explores the magnitude of the problem, the attitudes of men who rape women they know, and the devastating aftereffects, and looks at programs for change and healing. This new edition includes an updated Resource Section.

Critical Praise

 ”A devastating portrait of men who rape women they know... based on first-person accounts, scholarly studies and data from a nationwide survey of college campuses.” - Publishers Weekly

“A deeply disturbing study of date or acquaintance rape and the myths and cultural attitudes that encourage it.... For women who have suffered acquaintance rape, Warshaw’s book should be extraordinarily helpful. But it should be read by many others as well: a painful, provocative, and important work.” - Kirkus

“Essential . . . It is nonpolemical, lucid, and speaks eloquently not only to the victims of acquaintance rape but to all those caught in its net.” - Philadelphia Inquirer
