No safe place: the legacy of family violence
Christina Crawford's devastating memoir Mommie Dearest (over 5,000,000 sold), first as book and later as Hollywood film, made the American public aware of violence in the family. In No Safe Place, drawing further on her personal story, but adding sociological research and case histories, the author shows how family violence is responsible for addictive behavior, depression, sleep disorders, chronic illness, suicide, delinquency, homelessness, and apparently "mindless" violent crime. A call to action, this impassioned book offers the hope that in facing the truth about our families we can save our society and ourselves.
