Review:

"Feminist Review"
"This is a beautiful, fierce, necessary book written by an emotionally intelligent lioness who continues her efforts to break through the wall--one brick, one book-- at a time. I highly recommend it."

"Chicago Tribune"
"Makes many provocative and persuasive points about the long-term effects of child abuse, the interdependence between society and child-rearing and, finally, the individual's need to confront memories, however painful."

"San Francisco Chronicle"
"The applicability of Miller's concepts--especially during these divisive times--is what makes her message so cogent for American audiences."

"Moving Worlds"
"A penetrating look at how to break the cycle of child abuse in today's world."

"New Age Journal"
"Miller charts valuable territory."

"South Bend Tribune"
"What Miller has to say is enlightening...This is not a book that can be read through once and put aside. The reader can return again and again as new truth is recognized."

About the Author:

Alice Miller lives in France. For more than twenty years she taught and practised psychoanalysis. In 1973, due to her spontaneous painting she discovered her childhood history. Now, she radically questions the validity of psychoanalytic theories. As a result, in 1988 she resigned from the International Psychhoanalytical Association and, in 1995, revised 'The Drama of being a Child'.
