Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Herman links the public traumas of society to those of domestic life in this provocative work of psychiatric theory. (Aug.)
Booknews
Herman (psychiatry, Harvard Medical School) draws on her own research on domestic violence, as well as on a vast literature on combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors like rape and public traumas such as terrorism. At the heart of the book is a unique approach to recovery that demands that the therapist depart from a stance of moral neutrality, working slowly toward integration rather than catharsis.
