“This book shines a penetrating—indeed brilliant—light on this rapidly evolving landscape....It is difficult to see how anyone involved in these cases will be able to discharge their function properly without this text lying somewhere close at hand. I commend it without reservation.”
- Lord Justice Fulford, Vice President of the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) on the 5th Edition -

Rook & Ward, the most authoritative work on sexual offences, covers the most recent law, including crucial judgements relating to the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and significant changes in evidence, practise, and procedure. It is a necessary tool for all those engaged in the prosecution, defence, and trial of sexual offence cases, including lawyers, police officers, and medical professionals.

The 6th edition updates the work to reflect all recent advancements, including new chapters on:
  • Sexual abuse based on images.
  • In the military, sexual offences are common.
  • Scotland's sexual offences
  • Sexual offences and violence are classified as international crimes.
  • A new chapter has been added to help those conducting Parole Hearings examine and rehabilitate those guilty of sexual offences after they have been sentenced.
