An exam of adolescence trauma and its surreptitious, debilitating results by way of one of many world's top psychoanalysts.
Never earlier than has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller tested so persuasively the long-range results of early life abuse at the physique. utilizing the studies of her sufferers in addition to the biographical tales of literary giants resembling Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller indicates how a child's humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will present itself as grownup illness―be it melanoma, stroke, or different debilitating ailments. by no means one to shrink back from controversy, Miller urges society as a complete to jettison its trust within the Fourth Commandment and never to increase forgiveness to folks whose tyrannical childrearing tools have ended in unsatisfied, and sometimes ruined, grownup lives. during this empowering paintings, writes Rutgers professor Philip Greven, "readers will confront the overt and covert traumas in their personal childhoods with the enlightened suggestions of Alice Miller.

In her most modern vehement treatise, Swiss psychoanalyst Miller (The Drama of the proficient baby) reprises her vintage opinions of filial accountability.

Miller strains the connection among insufficient or tyrannical parenting and grownup physically sickness, melancholy and suicide in pithy biographies of Dostoyevski, Chekhov, Kafka, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce and so forth. but Miller is extra a subjective observer and a guru than a social scientist. Her hugely own, undertheorized and generalizing procedure will strike a few as simplistic, but those that loyally stick to her child-centered philosophy will most likely locate a lot to take pleasure in within the conviction with which she writes.
