This challenging new study presents a reappraisal of the problem of child sexual abuse. Jean La Fontaine assesses the myths and realities surrounding the abuser as well as the abused. She shows how "explanations" such as the child's sexual behaviour, children's fantasies and the relationship between parents and children have been used to deny the occurrence of sexual abuse. By examining definitions of child sexual abuse in the law, definitions used by social workers, psychologists and by abused adults and children themselves, La Fontaine highlights the obstacles which abused children often face when trying to bring the abuse out into the open. The author looks at the consequences of abuse for family relations, the abused child and the child's future. Throughout the study she stresses how the burden of guilt is shifted on to the child by many of the agencies and people involved. In her conclusion, La Fontaine asks how we can determine and allocate responsibility in highly problematic circumstances. Finally she outlines strategies which will be of great interest to students and professionals in sociology, psychology, social work and all concerned with the protection of our children.
