A Gentle Warning to Web Browsers: To say that Filicide: The Mythic Reality
of Childhood is thought-provoking is an understatement. The book
challenges many fundamental beliefs concerning religion, sex-roles,
child-rearing, politics, art, and so on. If you are involved in
a continuing questioning of yourself, this culture, this world,
then you will probably find Filicide: The Mythic Reality of Childhood
an invigorating and possibly even helpful exercise in mental stimulation.
If, on the other hand, you are comfortably ensconced in this culture,
I strongly urge you not to read the excerpt provided here. It is
likely to upset, possibly even anger, you. Please move on to other,
less challenging sites.
