This controversial work counters the forces that are discrediting allegations and suppressing recognition of the alarming incidence of child abuse in our society. John Myers brings together the work of experts to make the volume crucial reading for anyone concerned with this critical debate.

The book begins with an historical and sociological exploration of the issue. The Backlash then focuses on the experiences of various public bodies charged with child protection, such as Child Protective Services in the United States and their opponents, for example Victims of Child Abuse Laws (VOCAL). The volume also examines the backlash in Europe with a case study from The Netherlands and concludes with a survey of backlash literature and recommendations for responding to this attack on child protection.
