Product Description:

This work offers a new framework for understanding and healing. It asks are there parallels between private terrors like rape and public traumas such as terrorism?

From the Back Cover:

‘One of the most important psychiatric works to be published since Freud.’
PHYLLIS CHESLER, 'The New York Times Book Review'

This classic text reveals the systematic ‘degrading’ of the trauma suffered by women who are victims of rape, incest and domestic violence, as compared to the ‘heroic’ trauma of male war veterans. According to the author. ‘The implications of this insight are horrifying; the subordinate condition of women is maintained and enforced by the hidden violence of men. There is war between the sexes. Rape victims, battered women, and sexually abused children are its causalities. Hysteria is the combat neurosis of the sex war.’

Herman, psychiatrist and award-winning author, calls on 20 years of research and clinical work in this landmark study. She repeatedly challenges orthodoxies as she calls for a new diagnostic category for those suffering from ‘hidden’ traumas, and proposes revolutionary treatment which focuses on re-establishing the capacity for intimate relationships rather than the rehearsing of past trauma. Required reading for anyone who cares about the relationship between the sexes.
