CHOICE Review

Pornography is a pervasive feature of the contemporary social environment. Due to a stigma attached to the topic, at least some dimensions of pornography are under researched. Cusack, who has taught in criminal justice programs and once worked in the commercial pornography industry, has produced an exceptionally comprehensive survey of many different dimensions of pornography. The 23 chapters begin with a consideration of some philosophical and jurisprudential underpinnings of pornography and conclude with some future projections. In between, chapters consider definitional issues, viewers' crimes, trafficking, cyberspace dimensions, "unintended pornography" (including revenge porn), bestiality, simulations, fantasies, pornography addiction, and some international and comparative dimensions, among other topics. For the most part, with the exception of child pornography cases, pornography has not been a major focus of the US criminal justice system in the recent era. However, the author identifies various court rulings, case outcomes, and such matters as police investigations, federal and state punishments, criminal justice personnel as perpetrators, and evidentiary standards on the topic. Altogether, this book provides a starting point for more in-depth exploration of various aspects of pornography. References are quite extensive and useful. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --David O. Friedrichs, University of Scranton
