Product description

Review

"[A] harrowing account." --"Library Journal"

"A compelling, grim account of the struggle for victims of sexual violence to be heard and believed."--"Publishers Weekly"

"[A] gripping story of one woman's journey through abuse, drug addiction, and imprisonment. . . . "Freeing Tammy" is an invaluable contribution to the field of women's criminology." --"Women's Review of Books"

"[A] dynamic, stunning account . . . Raphael addresses the question of prison as punishment or rehabilitation. She leaves the reader with a piercing question of whether ex-felons should be viewed as "immoral convicts" or whether they should be treated as persons who need new opportunities to succeed. Recommended for students of criminology, public policy makers, and teachers and counselors who work with "at-risk" populations." --"Multicultural Review"

"[A] compelling account, . . . the second in a planned trilogy on impoverished woman and violence to give voice to poor women of color in prostitution, and to provide new perspectives, grounded in new research data, regarding the social implications of today's multibillion-dollar sex industry." --"Booklist"

"A must-read for everyone who wishes to end not just welfare, but poverty 'as we know it." --Patricia Ireland

"Quite artfully done."--"The Armchair Librarian"

"eye-opening expose shows how Americans, including some high profile feminists, ignore or underestimate the devastating nature of this form of assault."--"Ms."

"A powerful account of the ways in which rape deniers reject the impact of and commonality of acquaintance rape." --Metapsychology Online Reviews

A powerful account of the ways in which rape deniers reject the impact of and commonality of acquaintance rape. Metapsychology Online Reviews "
