This book consists of 13 chapters written by five authors, mostly physicians.  The book highlights many issues confronting child abuse, and contains a mailing list for the anatomical dolls and movies for training.  Although this book is short and lightweight, it contains a good discussion of false allegations of child sexual abuse.  But the training movies listed are one-sided, highly feminist and unreflective of current materials.  However, the book is worth buying for Chapter 6, "True and False Allegations of Child Sexual Abuse."
