Victims of rape can be subjected to an intense scrutiny of their sexual history and sexual character once the case is brought to court. In 1985, legislation was passed in Scotland to control the amount of such evidence and the way it is used in court. This book looks back over the last eight years and assesses the impact the legislation has had on the conduct of rape trials in Scotland. It combines socio-legal analysis with empirical evidence and argues that the Scottish experience has much to show other systems.
