Read the Introduction and Afterword...

“Pedophiles on Parade is probably the most in-depth look ever of adults who would have sex with children. It’s also the best. ...the most in-depth look ever... rich with thought-provoking observations. ...His is a biting, at times savage, critique informed by an historical perspective that brooks no interference from the surrounding culture. The result is must reading for those who wonder why individuals may now be stigmatized for life as ‘sexual predators,’ and given a life sentence for one or two instances of casual sex with a teenager.”
