De Milly, Walter. (1999) In my father’s arms:  A true story of incest. Univ. of Wisconsin Press, Madison, WI.
NOTE: From the publisher: “The TV-perfect family of Walter de Milly III was like many others in the American South of the 1950s -- seemingly close-knit, solidly respectable, and active in the community. Tragically, Walter’s deeply troubled father would launch his family on a perilous journey into darkness. To the outside world, this man is a prominent businessman, a dignified Presbyterian, and a faithful husband; to Walter, he is an overwhelming, handsome monster. Whenever the two are together, young Walter becomes a sexual plaything for his father; father and son outings are turned into soul-obliterating nightmares. Walter eventually becomes a successful businessman only to be stricken by another catastrophe: his father, at the age of seventy, is caught molesting a young boy. Walter is asked to confront his father. He convenes the family, and in a private conference with a psychiatrist, his father agrees to be surgically castrated. De Milly’s portraits of his relationships with his father and mother, and the confrontation that  leads to his father’s bizarre and irreversible voluntary “cure”, are certain to be remembered long after the reader has set aside this powerful contribution to the literature of incest survival.”

Echols, Mike. (1996) Brother Tony’s boys: The largest case of child prostitution in U.S. history: The true story. Prometheus Books, Amherst, NY.
NOTE: From the publisher: “For over 25 years, charismatic Pentecostal evangelist Brother Tony Leyva used Christianity, the Bible, and his status as an “annointed prophet of God” to gain access to, seduce, and sexually assault the young sons of his enthralled followers in 23 states. How could such heinous acts continue undetected for over two decades? “Brother Tony’s Boys” peels back the multiple layers of this twisted evangelist’s double life to answer this and other bone-chilling questions. Read the riveting true story of how Leyva brought his old-fashioned hellfire and brimstone revival to cities and towns from Florida to New York and from Illinois to Louisiana and, under the cloak of God, systematically manipulated and sexually assaulted adolescent boys and procured victims for other “men of God”. Using eyewitness accounts of victims, Mike Echols, author of the bestseller and 5-time Emmy nominated mini-series “I Know My First Name Is Steven”, strips bare the world of Pentecostals in the United States today to reveal how, in this unique yet growing Christian sect, impassioned faith and devotion to the “annointed ones” blinded parents to the evil in their midst.”

Etherington, Kim. (2000) Narrative approaches to working with male survivors of child sexual abuse: The client’s, the counsellor’s and the researcher’s story. Jessica Kingsley Publishers, London, England and Philadelphia, PA.

NOTE: From the publisher: “This book presents first-hand accounts from two male survivors of childhood abuse and from the counsellor who worked with them. The two brothers suffered severe sexual abuse from their father and were each unaware of the other’s ordeal. Despite having been subjected to the same abusive conditions, their stories of their survival and recovery are very different. They describe the work they separately undertook with a counsellor and discuss a number of issues, which include sexuality, spirituality and perception of maleness and relationships. Etherington goes on to describe the counsellor’s perspective, and draws out the implications for counselling practice. She discusses the client-counsellor relationship, the techniques and approaches she used and makes links with her other work. She explores the significance of boundaries when working with members of the same family and working in parallel with another therapist.”

NOTE: From the publisher: “(This book) provides detailed guidelines for helping men initiate and sustain change in their personal, familial, and professional lives. The authors' approach is an integration of several theoretical schools including family systems, humanistic, experiential, and psychoeducational models. Using a psychosocial lens, they take men as individuals into account while examining the different roles males occupy as parents, husbands, workers, and friends. Separate chapters illustrate how each of these roles challenges men to confront many of the traditional and stereotypical messages that they have internalized from boyhood. The wide range of resulting problems--including depression, relationship conflicts, workaholism, and parenting difficulties--are discussed in relation to specific strategies which clinicians can employ to ameliorate them. Throughout, the authors use clinical vignettes and case examples to illustrate the ways practitioners can engage men and help them discover rewards of emotional vulnerability.”

The author of this book brings this neglected area `out of the shadows' with personal accounts of adult survivors, insights into why sibling abuse occurs, suggestions for prevention and implications for treatment.”
