Dans la France d'aujourdhui, des enfants sont encore victimes de violences par des membres de leur famille. Cela paraît difficile à admettre dans un pays civilisé, démocratique et économiquement développé, où, depuis plus de cent ans, les lois se sont succédées pour interdire le travail des enfants de moins de 16 ans et prévenir les multiples abus dont ils étaient encore les victimes au début de ce siècle. Pourtant les témoignages et les divers rapports des services sociaux, des juges et du numéro vert " allô, enfance maltraitée " en fournissent chaque jour la preuve. La presse, la radio et la télévision nous le relatent quotidiennement. Que se passe-t-il dans le secret des familles ? Quels sont les modes de relation et de communication qui induisent la maltraitance et l'inceste ? Comment s'exerce la toute-puissance des parents à travers l'obéissance et le respect qu'ils inculquent à leurs enfants ? Quels mécanismes pervers d'emprise empêchent les enfants de parler et de se faire entendre ? Les mêmes " organisations relationnelles " se retrouvent dans divers pays d'Europe et en Amérique du Nord provoquant des traumatismes similaires chez les jeunes et leurs familles. Autrefois, le grand nombre d'orphelins et de " sans famille ", les abandons, les placements, les remariages des veufs, ainsi que l'insécurité des villes et des campagnes menaçaient les enfants. Aujourd'hui ils semblent mieux protégés. Pourtant la seconde révolution industrielle recrée un temps d'instabilité économique et familiale dont les enfants paient souvent le prix.

Jamie was just five years old and the horrific scene literally struck him dumb. He didn't speak for four and a half years, which meant he was unable to ask anyone for help as his life turned into a living hell. His schizophrenic mother and two of his older brothers spent the following years beating him, raping him and locking him in the cellar at the family home. Fed on scraps that he was forced to lick from the floor, he was sometimes left naked in the dark for three days without human contact. Unable to read or write, all Jamie could do to communicate his suffering was draw pictures - the same one over and over of his father on fire, which allowed his mother to convince teachers at his school that he had been mentally unbalanced by the trauma. The violence and sexual abuse grew in severity as more people, including his stepfather, were invited to use him in any way they chose. The only thing that saved Jamie was the kindness of his elder brother and his only school friend, both of whom showed him that love was possible even in the darkest of situations. At fourteen he finally found the courage to run away, hiding in a hut by a railway line, fed on scraps by some local children who found him, but this 'freedom' was brief. For the next two, bleak years he was dragged between a children's home and his mother's house until the moment he turned sixteen, when he walked out and hitch-hiked to the other end of the country, finally free from his tormentors and ready to begin a new life. Jamie's is the ultimate insider's story, casting light into the darkest of hidden worlds, and a truly inspirational account of how one small boy found the strength to overcome almost impossible odds and become a remarkable man. Now that he has found his voice again, Jamie speaks out against child abuse and helps support and protect other children whose lives have been blighted by it.

Fear -- the word, itself, conjures the appropriate response. With a dark cacophony of associations like fright, dread, horror, panic, alarm, anxiety, and terror, fear is universally understood as one of the most basic and powerful of human emotions, obtaining a nearly palpable and overwhelming substance in today's world. In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed historian and prize-winning author Joanna Bourke covers the landscape of fear over the past two hundred years: From the nineteenth century dread of being buried alive -- a subject dear to the heart of Edgar Allen Poe -- to the current worry over being able to die when one chooses; from the diagnoses of phobias and anxieties produced by psychotherapists and lovingly catalogued, to the role of popular culture and media in inciting panic and dread; from the horrors of the nuclear age to the fear of twenty-first century terrorism, Fear tells the story of anguish in modern times. A blend of social and cultural history with psychology, philosophy, and popular science, this astonishing book -- exhaustively researched and beautifully written -- offers strikingly original insights into the mind and worldview of the "long twentieth century” from one of the most brilliant scholars of our time.

For readers of Room and The Glass Castle, an astonishing memoir of one woman rising above an unimaginable childhood. Maude Julien's parents were fanatics who believed it was their sacred duty to turn her into the ultimate survivor - raising her in isolation, tyrannizing her childhood and subjecting her to endless drills designed to "eliminate weakness." Maude learned to hold an electric fence for minutes without flinching, and to sit perfectly still in a rat-infested cellar all night long (her mother sewed bells onto her clothes that would give her away if she moved). She endured a life without heat, hot water, adequate food, friendship, or any kind of affectionate treatment. But Maude's parents could not rule her inner life. Befriending the animals on the lonely estate as well as the characters in the novels she read in secret, young Maude nurtured in herself the compassion and love that her parents forbid as weak. And when, after more than a decade, an outsider managed to penetrate her family's paranoid world, Maude seized her opportunity. By turns horrifying and magical, The Only Girl in the World is a story that will grip you from the first page and leave you spellbound, a chilling exploration of psychological control that ends with a glorious escape.

The salmagundi of prose poems, prose-poetic musings, criticism, and reflections that is "Divagations" has long been considered a treasure trove by students of aesthetics and modern poetry. This was the only book of prose that Mallarme published in his lifetime and, in a new translation by Johnson, it is now available for the first time in English just as he arranged it, in all of its languor and musicality.
