The Secret Trauma: Incest in the Lives of Girls and Women

Synopsis

The Secret Trauma remains the definitive study of the overwhelming prevalence of incestuous abuse in American families. Basing her findings on her large-scale study, Diana E. H. Russell makes a persuasive case for an epidemic of abuse on a national scale. The Secret Trauma is a nuanced and sophisticated analysis of the complex variables of incestuous abuse: the changing incidence of abuse over time; the severity of the abuse; the victim's age; factors of class, race, and ethnicity, and long-term effects on victims.
