My lie : a true story of false memory by Meredith Maran( )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Journalist Meredith Maran lived a daughter's nightmare: she accused her father of sexual abuse, then realized, nearly too late, that he was innocent. During the 1980s and 1990s, tens of thousands of Americans became convinced that they had repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse, and then, decades later, recovered those memories in therapy. Maran was one of them. Her accusation and estrangement from her father divided her family into those who believed her and those who didn't, and led her to isolate herself among "survivors" who devoted their lives, and life savings, to recovering memories of events that had never occurred. Exploring the psychological, cultural, and neuroscientific causes of this modern American witch-hunt, Maran asks how so many people could come to believe the same lie at the same time? And perhaps more importantly: what are the "big lies" gaining traction in American culture today--and how can we keep them from taking hold?--From publisher description
