Justice Denied: What America Must Do to Protect its Children (Hardcover)
by Marci A. Hamilton (Author)

Editorial Reviews

"Too many 'talk the talk' of making children a priority in society. What Hamilton has done with her book is to show a clear and simple way that policymakers can 'walk the walk'. . . [she] clearly and articulately connects the value of using civil law as a tool to protect children. " --Ted Thompson, Executive Director, NAPSAC (Natl Assn to Prevent the Sexual Abuse of Children)

"This brave book is one all lawmakers should read." --Jason Berry, author of Lead Us Not Into Temptation

"In understandable, eloquent prose, Marci Hamilton makes the case for abolishing a statutory scheme that protects sexual predators and which closes our courtrooms to maltreated children. Although it is too late to claim the honor of having acted quickly to address this injustice, this book shows us how to avoid the disgrace of having never acted at all." --Victor Vieth, Director, National Child Protection Training Center

"Hamilton is absolutely right: a vigorous and effective children's civil rights movement is long overdue . . . I applaud Marci Hamilton for leading the way with her outstanding legal scholarship, advocacy and passion for justice!" --Eileen King, Regional Director, Justice For Children

"Hamilton provides a compelling case that demonstrates that the interests of insurance companies, unions, churches, and schools will always trump the safety of children unless we do something about it. Hamilton tells us what we can do, how to do it, and why it will work." --Charol Shakeshaft, Chairperson and Professor, Department of Educational Leadership, Virginia Commonwealth University

"Professor Hamilton combines genuine sensitivity to the plight of survivors of childhood sexual abuse with in depth expertise in the working of the legal system. " --Barbara Bennett Woodhouse, Director, Center on Children and Families, Fredric G. Levin College of Law, University of Florida

"A powerful call to action by one of America's leading constitutional scholars. Marci Hamilton makes clear what must be done if we are to prevent the continued sexual abuse of children." --Jeff Dion, National, Center for Victims of Crime.

This sounds great Dale. Much overdue. I get so fed up with our politicians and the hollywood set with their symbolism over substance regarding issues. Everyone wants to "raise Awareness" for this cause or that cause by buying little ribbons and such but to actually look at the issues and get down to business and do something about it is just to much effort. Easier to throw money at the problem, wear a little symbol, feel good and go about your business and not really do anything to make a significant difference. Sigh.......

Thanks for posting this. I have heard of Hamilton's book but haven't read it yet. But surely getting rid of the statute of limitations for CSA offenses is long overdue, especially now that it's well known how the vast majority of survivors are silenced for years after the abuse occurs.

Youthfulheart, I love your image - a million kids marching and demanding justice.

Much love,
