Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Why are we obsessed by stories of child molesting by strangers or child care workers, despite the evidence that such events are very rare? The author (English, Univ. of Southern California) offers startling views on this and other issues concerning child sexuality. His material spans a number of disciplines, including 19th-century literature and child care books, modern social history, court transcripts, and sex manuals. While the book suffers from a surfeit of deconstuctionist verbiage, the author's wide-ranging scholarship and provocative ideas more than make up for the shortcomings. Recommended for most academic and research libraries and for larger public libraries that collect academic material for educated lay readers.
- Mary Ann Hughes, Washington State Univ. Libs., Pullman

Many sentences are long, complex, and abstract.
By the time I get to the predicate, I've forgotten what the subject was.
You are welcome to read this book if you are a better reader than I am.
