About the Author:

Paula J. Caplan, a clinical and research psychologist, is author of 11 books, including Don?t Blame Mother, They Say You?re Crazy: How the World?s Most Powerful Psychiatrists Decide Who?s Normal, Lifting a Ton of Feathers, and (co-author) Thinking Critically About Research on Sex and Gender.

From Library Journal:

Caplan, a Canadian clinical and research psychologist, focuses on the ``most salient phenomena that have been mistakenly labeled as signs of women's masochism.'' She explores these behaviors and suggests interpretations other than masochism through a review of the literature, anecdotes, and interviews. Caplan's purpose is to put ``a halt to the labeling of women as naturally, inevitably masochistic.'' She also presents a good review of the psychoanalytic basis for these myths. Areas covered include work, women's relationships with men, women as victims of violence, and therapy. There are extensive bibliographical notes. An important addition for psychology of women collections. Susan McBride, Northeast Texas Community Coll. LRC, Mt. Pleasant
