The author is Judith Herman, MD. I have not read this book.
This was a textbook my daughter used for a college class on domestic violence. The blurb on the back reads: "TRAUMA AND RECOVERY is universally recognized as a classic in the field of psychology. In a new afterword written for this edition, Judith Herman describes the controversy that has surrounded her work, the new research that has emerged in the field, and the far-reaching implications that this book has had in trauma situations around the world."
