In these pages you’ll meet a community of rape and sexual violence survivors who have been shaped, but refuse to be defined, by their histories of violence. They are brave, and they are outspoken—but, mostly, they are hopeful. From its insistently resolute opening essay to its final, deeply moving story, Lived Through This is a book that defies conventional wisdom about life in the wake of sexual violence, while putting names and faces on an issue that too often leaves its victims silent and invisible. Part personal history of Anne Ream’s own experience rebuilding her life after violence, part memoir of a multi-country, multi-year journey spent listening to survivors, Lived Through This is at once deeply personal and resolutely political. In these pages we are introduced to, among others, the women of Atenco, Mexico, victims of rape and political torture who are speaking out about gender-based violence in Latin America; Beth Adubato, a woman who was raped by a popular athlete and then denied justice when her college failed to fully investigate the attack; and Jenny and Steve Bush, a rape survivor and her father who are working together to share Jenny’s testimony of surviving rape at the hands of a veteran in order to alter the US military’s response to sexual violence committed by those in its ranks. Writing with compassion, candor, and, at times, even much-needed humor, Ream brings us a series of stories and essays that are as insistent as they are incisive. Considered individually, her profiles are profoundly moving, and even inspiring. Considered collectively, they are a window into a world where sexual violence is more commonplace than most of us imagine. The accomplished and courageous women and men profiled in Lived Through This are, in the words of the author, “living reminders of all that remains possible in the wake of the terrible.” From the Hardcover edition.

Die meisten Vergewaltiger kannten ihre Opfer vorher, wodurch die Strafverfolgung und die gerichtliche Suche nach der Wahrheit oft komplex und undurchsichtig ist und die vergewaltigten Frauen ein zweites Mal traumatisiert werden. In seinem neuen Buch beschäftigt sich Jon Krakauer mit Vergewaltigungsfällen in der amerikanischen Universitätsstadt Missoula. Minutiös und doch einfühlsam skizziert er die Ereignisse, die eine ganze Gesellschaft an der Frage nach Recht und Unrecht, Wahrheit und Lüge verzweifeln lassen, er spricht mit den Beschuldigten und den Opfern und schildert packend, wie schmerzhaft die Suche nach Gerechtigkeit und Sühne bei Gericht sein kann.

»Ein Buch, das man mit angehaltenem Atem verschlingt.« Washington Post Dieser Roman über ein junges Mädchen hat Amerikas Leserschaft überwältigt und gespalten. Denn Turtle Alveston, so verletzlich wie stark, ist eine der unvergesslichsten Heldinnen der zeitgenössischen Literatur.

Erst als sie ihren Mitschüler Jacob näher kennenlernt und wahre Freundschaft erfährt, beginnt die Befreiung aus seinen Klauen.

“Slippers would break, rods would break, my skin would break and bleed, my clothes would stain, but my spirit remain untouched.” Throughout her childhood, Priya Saklani had only one friend ‘FEAR,’ which was constant. She can’t recollect the time when she felt needed. She completely lacked the knowledge or understanding of what human affection meant because the only reason why people touched her was to abuse her. Longing for affection, Priya felt nothing more than an object who was being passed on from one man to another. There was more to her than her body. In what might seem dark for some readers initially, The Wounded Healer depicts the undying strength and courage of a spirit who rose from the ashes like a phoenix and became a warrior from a victim. The pain had a lot to teach her as she channelized that suffering as a stepping stone to a higher state of consciousness, treating her scars like trophies. Priya turned her wounds to wisdom, healing herself and today she is using that wisdom to help others heal. The Wounded Healer - A memoir of Priya Saklani, details a compelling and ferocious insight into a mind and life of a victim of complex trauma, demonstrating just how childhood affects every aspect of your life.

Redemption Stories

The author has collected and shaped interviews into a book of true stories of the stunning journeys that ordinary people have made from pain to redemption. Unwasted Pain, the subtitle of the book, refers to the process of facing and distilling pain from such difficulties as abuse, hatred, crime, war and evil--and finding more peace and equilibrium (sometimes more than there was before). Besides the twenty-one stories that comprise the chapters of this book, Mary Ciofalo has also written four essays and an introduction that include more vignettes of redemption stories along with her observations about the nature and activation of redemption. She tells us what she has gleaned while compiling this book. She also includes the view of an Advaitan Swami and an Episcopalian minister, as well as those of a former warden of San Quentin Prison. This book is inspirational; and it has the potential to expand one's thinking to include the possibility of redemption to both the harmed and the harmer--in situations where one might not even conceive of mercy or forgiveness or the possibility of redemtption.

Slavery, both in its historical and modern forms, continues to be a matter of undiminished political and social relevance. This is mirrored by an increasing interest in scholarly research as well as by critical statements from within the field of contemporary art. The present volume is designed to bring together artists and scholars from various fields of study discussing trauma and visuality, or more precisely, memory and denial of traumatic history within visual discourses. The purpose of this project is to put the phenomenon of contemporary art production dealing with the issue of slavery into a wider, interdisciplinary and transcultural context. The book covers current case studies focusing on different media and including visual, literary and performative approaches of dealing with the history of slavery in West-African, American and European cultures.
