Abstract:

"This volume follows my recent book on pedophilia and sexual offending against children, also published by the American Psychological Association (Seto, 2008). After that endeavor, which took almost 3 years to complete, I thought I would take a break before assuming the (satisfying) challenge of writing another book. But after a plenary talk on online offending I gave at the 2009 Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) conference in Dallas, Texas, a colleague, Jean Proulx, asked me why I was not writing a book about this topic, given the demand for knowledge about this emerging problem. That was a good question. It was clear that there was a great deal of demand because of the increasing number of cases seen by law enforcement and by clinicians; it was also clear that there was a lack of research. I was also motivated to write this book by a long-standing fascination with online technologies, beginning with reading Neuromancer (Gibson, 1984) as a high school student, with its description of cyberspace (a term that Gibson purportedly coined) and its crypto-dystopian view of the impact of online technologies on human freedom, capacity, and behavior. As someone who learned to create very basic computer programs using punch cards and then a teletype device connected to a university mainframe, I remember well the emergence of the World Wide Web, when websites were numbered in the hundreds rather than the hundreds of millions. Reflecting the fact that this book is about the way that the Internet can facilitate sexual offending, I rely heavily on online resources. Though I try to use permalinks whenever available, links can change over time; the documents might still be found, however, using search engines when links are no longer active. Also reflecting the nonlinearity and linkages of the Internet, this book includes footnotes and appendices that do not follow the main narrative but provide additional information and context about the content in the corresponding chapter. One can treat them like links or pop-up boxes while reading"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved).
