STI is pleased to announce the release of The Social Costs of Pornography: A Collection of Papers. The articles that make up this extensive, well-researched volume are drawn from a consultation co-sponsored by STI and the Institute for the Psychological Sciences and held by the Witherspoon Institute in December 2008. The papers in this volume attempt to document, analyze, and explain the social harms associated with pornography consumption, making the case for revisiting an issue that many would rather ignore. The authors differ in their scholarly training, political perspective, and religious affiliation. While they do not all diagnose the problem in the same way or agree to a single program of reform, they share the view that pornography in the Internet Age poses new problems and can inflict crippling harms. This book is a necessary guide to recent research on pornography today.
