33 of 38 people found the following review helpful By J. Steven Svoboda (real name) on September 19, 2002
Format: Paperback
I feel called upon to warn everyone I can possibly reach in the strongest possible terms against squandering their time or money on the worst book I have ever read, let alone actually reviewed, in the entire field of gender equity and men's rights.
Strong words? Maybe but I feel they are fully justified by the facts. First of all, it is galling in the extreme to find a book of such low quality bearing a highly misleading title implying that it will usefully analyze the disgracefully neglected issue of men as abuse victims and even suggesting that it may expand upon Philip Cook's seminal 1997 masterpiece "Abused Men: The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence." Instead, discounting references, Brothers offers fewer than a hundred smallishly-sized, large-type pages of text, six articles in total, only ONE (by Tonia L. Nicholls and Donald G. Dutton) concentrating on the effects of abuse on its male victims.
What can the other five articles possibly address, you may wonder. The first piece is a bizarre, disjointed transcript of seminar leader Virginia Satir's speech to a live audience. Ostensibly addressing "models of perceiving the world" and "relationship as hierarchy," the piece sheds no light on any issue of any relevance to the book's ostensible topic.
Immediately following this most curious opening piece is an analysis by Audrey Diane Bloom and Randall Lyle of the "vicarious trauma" which may afflict male partners of female sexual-abuse survivors. Their article never manages to engage its topic effectively.
It gets worse. Aphrodite Matsakis manages to write an article entitled "The Impact of the Abuse of Males on Intimate Relationships" while demonstrating her evidently perfect ignorance of the fact that domestic violence does at times occur to adult male victims.
