Trauma and Recovery
Judith Herman, M.D.


Harvard Med School's trauma expert Judith Herman draws on her own cutting-edge research on domestic violence, as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism. Herman places individual experience in a broader political frame, arguing that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. A powerful work that will continue to profoundly impact our thinking.
