About

Originally published in 1984, Thou Shalt Not Be Aware explodes Freud's notions of »infantile sexuality« and helps to bring to the world's attention the brutal reality of child abuse, changing forever our thoughts of »traditional« methods of child-rearing. 

Dr. Miller exposes the harsh truths behind children's »fantasies« by examining case histories, works of literature, dreams, and the lives of such people as Franz Kafka, Virginia Woolf, Gustave Flaubert, and Samuel Beckett. [...] Thou Shalt Not Be Aware continues to bring an essential understanding to the confrontation and treatment of the devastating effects of child abuse. (book description from the English edition published by FSG)
