Book Reviw: The Myth of Repressed Memory

Dr Elizabeth Loftus and Katherine Ketcham

St. Martin's Press, New York 1994 ISBN 0-312-11454-0

"The nation's leading expert on memory exposes the recent wave of sex abuse charges based on 'repressed memories' as akin to a twentieth-century version of the Salem Witch Trials."

Once again, some memories of abuse are all too real. This book does not, in any way, deny or attempt to discredit this. It is about a related, but different, topic, namely that "Therapists and lawyers have created an industry based on treating and litigating the cases of people who suddenly claim to have 'recovered' memories of everything from child abuse to murder."
