It is possible to destroy someone simply with words, looks, and innuendos: the term for this is emotional abuse or moral harassment, and the evidence is mounting that this a major epidemic in our culture. In this landmark study, already a bestseller in France and forthcoming in over ten countries, the author analyzes, with numerous examples, the specific features of an abusive relationship -- and cautions against complacency. She demonstrates a deadly process at work among couples, families, and in the workplace, a process that sweeps its victims into a downward vortex that can even lead to suicide. Until now the subject of emotional abuse through perverse violence has been largely neglected. This noteworthy and well-documented book is a practical guide for its victims and for people wishing to help them, as well as for health professionals. Written clearly and vividly, Stalking the Soul will engage all those who choose not to remain indifferent to a painful and surprisingly widespread problem in our society today.
