Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Secret Trauma remains the definitive argument for the overwhelming prevalence of incestuous abuse. Based on findings about San Francisco, the book makes a persuasive case for an epidemic of abuse on a national scale. In her nuanced and sophisticated analysis, Russell carefully explores the complex variables of incestuous abuse: the changing incidence of abuse over time, the severity of th abuse, the victims age, factors of class, race, and ethnicity, and long term effects on victims.In a new introduction to the revised edition, Russell takes on the most important issue to arise in the field since the book was originally published in 1986: the serious backlash that followed the outpouring of reports by victims/survivors, and the controversy over false accusations and “false memories.”

Book News Annotation:

First published in 1986, this volume presents the results of a large- scale study of the incidence and consequences of incest. In a new introduction to the present revised edition, Russel (sociology, Mills College, Oakland) explores the backlash that has followed the reports of incest survivors, as well as the controversy over "false memories."

This landmark book, based on a scientifically sound, large-scale study, presents convincing evidence that both the incidence and the consequences of incest have been grossly underestimated.
