The Secret Trauma remains the definitive argument for the overwhelming prevalence of incestuous abuse. Based on findings about San Francisco, the book makes a persuasive case for an epidemic of abuse on a national scale. In her nuanced and sophisticated analysis, Russell carefully explores the complex variables of incestuous abuse: the changing incidence of abuse over time, the severity of th abuse, the victim's age, factors of class, race, and ethnicity, and long term effects on victims.In a new introduction to the revised edition, Russell takes on the most important issue to arise in the field since the book was originally published in 1986: the serious backlash that followed the outpouring of reports by victims/survivors, and the controversy over false accusations and false memories.”

About the Author:

Diana E.H. Russell, Ph.D., author of Behind Closed Doors in White South Africe and Rape in Marriage, is professor of sociology at Mills College, Oakland, California.

From Library Journal:

An in-depth investigation into the effects of incest was undertaken by Russell to determine the prevalence of sexual assault in America. The Secret Trauma is the result of that study. Some 930 San Franciscans of various races, religions, and ethnic and economic backgrounds were interviewed. The study focused on causative factors; characteristics, such as frequency, duration, severity of abuse, and age of victim and abuser; the socioeconomic history of victims and their families; coping strategies; long-term effects of abuse; the probability of revictimization; incest and relationship of abuser to abused; and the supportive/nonsupportive role of family members. The study's importance is due to its methodological techniques, findings, and review of earlier research. Highly recommended. Frada L. Mozenter, Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte Lib.
