This powerful book takes up the disturbing topic of victimization & blame as a pathology of our time & its consequences for personal responsibility. By probing the psychological dynamics of victims & perpetrators of rape, sexual abuse, & domestic violence, Sharon Lamb seeks to answer some crucial questions: How do victims become victims & sometimes perpetrators? How can we break the psychological circle of perpetrators blaming others & victims blaming themselves? How do victims & perpetrators view their actions & reactions? And how does our social response to them facilitate patterns of excuse? This work looks at the topic of victimisation and blame as a pathology for our time, and its consequences for personal responsibility.
