The contemporary monster: the social construction of pedophilia on multiple levels

456 pp.
ISBN: 978-85-7511-371-4

Based on an ethnography of the CPI on Pedophilia in the Federal Senate and investigations by the Federal Police in the fight against child pornography, the book delves into the historical construction of the criminal categories that refer, today, to sexual violence involving minors. Under an anthropological bias, it seeks to discuss the social, cultural and moral dynamics that shape the configuration of the problem of sexual violence against children and adolescents, from the pedophilia category.
