Social movements, social media, mobilization, and public opinion are all instantly available to the public and, as such, are addressed in this book as a history of the present regarding sexual assault cases. How does public discourse construct victims? Who is worthy of the law's protection? Who gets to be angry? How do race and social position affect outcomes? In today's world of the #MeToo movement and other groups challenging rape culture, Banner (Univ. of Michigan, Dearborn) outlines the many ways that sexual assault is being addressed, and by whom, and the identity of those whose issues are taken into account for social and legal reforms. Several high-profile trials are used to illustrate the changing ways the public sees and is seen in relation to these issues (such as rape myths), especially via social media. The book describes these cases and the response to them from the public in detail, with consideration for the rapid social changes that are taking place as a result. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, faculty, and professionals.
