For your own good : hidden cruelty in child-rearing and the roots of violence by Alice Miller( Book )
121 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 2,771 libraries worldwide
This contemporary classic by a celebrated Swiss psychoanalyst explores the serious if not gravely dangerous consequences parental cruelty can bring to bear on children everywhere. With her typically lucid, strong, and poetic language, Miller investigates the personal stories and case histories of various self-destructive and/or violent individuals to expand on her theories about the long-term affects of abusive child-rearing. Her conclusions--on what sort of parenting can create a drug addict, or a murderer, or a Hitler--offer much insight, and make a good deal of sense, while also straying far from psychoanalytic dogma about human nature, which Miller vehemently rejects. This important study paints a shocking picture of the violent world--indeed, of the ever-more-violent world--that each generation helps to create when traditional upbringing, with its hidden cruelty, is perpetuated. The book also presents readers with useful solutions in this regard--namely, to resensitize the victimized child who has been trapped within the adult, and to unlock the emotional life that has been frozen in repression.--From

La présente traduction est faite d'après l'édition allemande de 1994. Selon toute vraisemblance, la nouvelle traductrice a une approche différente pour présenter et traduire chacun des trois articles; autre possibilité, l'auteure aurait revu et modifié quelques éléments de ses travaux. Des questions variées sont abordées: 1. L'enfant doué; la recherche du vrai soi; le travail de psychothérapeute - 2. Dépression et grandiosité: deux formes du déni - 3. Le cercle vicieux du mépris.

The body never lies : the lingering effects of cruel parenting by Alice Miller( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 771 libraries worldwide
"Using numerous case histories gleaned from her practice, as well as examining the biographical stories of celebrated writers such as Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, Friedrich Nietzsche, and others, Miller shows how a child's emotional traumas, repressed humiliation, and bottled rage can manifest themselves as serious adult health problems. In discussing the lives of these literary giants, Miller explores the known or, in some cases, unknown traumas that haunted each author's childhood. More important, Miller connects the writers' painful childhoods with their later afflictions, which included depression, anorexia, cancer, and even insanity. While examining everything from parental spanking to sexual abuse and emotional blackmail, Miller exposes the societal pressures that converge to harm children."--Jacket

The untouched key : tracing childhood trauma in creativity and destructiveness by Alice Miller( Book )
14 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 355 libraries worldwide
As in her former books, Alice Miller again focusses on facts. She is as determined as ever to cut through the veil that, for thousands of years now, has been so meticulously woven to shroud the truth. And when she lifts that veil and brushes it aside, the results are astonishing, as is amply demonstrated by her analyses of the works of Nietzsche, Picasso, Kollwitz, Keaton and others. With the key shunned by so many for so long - childhood - she opens rusty looks and offers her readers a wealth of unexpected perspectives. What did Picasso express in "Guernica"' Why did Buster Keaton never smile' Why did Nietzsche heap so much opprobrium on women and religion, and lose his mind for eleven years' Why did Hitler and Stalin become tyrannical mass murderers' Alice Miller investigates these and other questions thoroughly in this book. She draws from her discoveries the conclusion that human beings are not "innately" destructive, that they are made that way by ignorance, abuse, and neglect, particularly if no sympathetic witness comes to their aid. She also shows why some mistreated children do not become criminals but instead bear witness as artists to the truth about their childhoods, even though in purely intuitive and unconscious ways
