The Body Never Lies Paperback edition by Alice Miller
Miller believes that violence and crime in society have their roots in conventional child rearing and in education which can create a childhood prison. Miller describes how her discoveries can create freedom from this prison. This edition has been revised since her renunciation of psychoanalysis.
Now revised and updated to reflect the author's new insights, this modern classic explains why many of the most successful children and adults are plagued by feelings of emptiness and alienation--and tells how to break the cycle.
In this volume, the author draws on research on brain development to show how spanking and humiliation produce dangerous levels of denial in children, leading to emotional blindness and mental barriers that cut off awareness and new ways of of acting. She offers ways to heal these psychic wounds.
Originally published in 1984, Thou Shalt Not Be Aware explodes Freud's notions of "infantile sexuality" and helps to bring to the world's attention the brutal reality of child abuse, changing forever our thoughts of "traditional" methods of child-rearing.

Psychohistorical analyses of such tyrants as Hitler, Stalin and Ceausescu have shown the links between the horrors of their childhoods and that which they inflict on the world. In this text, Miller pleads for awareness of society's role in child abuse and for recognition of the victim.
