Review 'Sex and Harm in the Age of Consent is a strongly original, frequently brilliant, cross-disciplinary study of the limitations of consent for measuring sexual freedom and sexual harm.'?Tim Dean, University of Illinois, Urbana?Champaign 'Joseph J.

I applaud the author for the depth and breadth of his scholarship.'?PsycCRITIQUES 'A carefully written, intellectually challenging argument... A must read for queer and feminist scholars.'?CHOICE Read more About the Author Joseph J. Fischel is assistant professor of women?s, gender, and sexuality studies at Yale University. Read more
