Sep 16, 2012 Sheryl Sorrentino rated it really liked it. I read this book some years ago, but it stayed with me. A really disturbing look at childhood abuse-not directly at the hands of the victim's family, but by other caretakers as a result of neglect. This is an inspiring story of survival, but not for the faint of heart.

For the members of the EPC, it was heartbreak to step aside from the tracts of wilderness they had preserved. And that was the difference. That was what they counted on, Kay knew it. Hank, her mother, her father, Wyatt, Reardon, Kellogg, the whole fucking lot of them – they counted on her, and the people like her, to do what was morally right, to plug the gaps in society that they could not be bothered to, that they thought hit their profit margin.

This concept is refined further in the book and is best summarized as the importance of the sanction of the victim

This concept is refined further in the book and is best summarized as the importance of the sanction of the victim. In the book’s political economy, this idea refers to the fact that the creators and producers continued to work hard at what they love, even as those around them made it increasingly more difficult to do so. Like Atlas, the weight of the looters continued to bear down on the attempts of the producers to keep the railways and steel factories open

Hearst was the granddaughter of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst

I know Patti and when I learned she wrote a book that was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize I knew I had to find it and read it. The book is not in print and I was unable to find a new copy at a price that seemed reasonable to me. I finally forked over $30 for a tattered and worn copy. I'm glad I found it. Checking into it, not only was By Sanction of the Victim nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, it became required reading in many University curriculum. However, it did not gain a wide readership outside the Universities. My theory is the book was too disturbing and too early and the subject matter was not understood by most people. I am encouraging and if necessary I will beg and plead for Patti to republish this work. As a nation we have grown more aware of how pervasive child abuse is. We we want to understand it and stop it. This book will not tell you what "typical" abuse is, it won't talk about patterns, it won't give solutions. This tells one story of one girl and those that abused her. The book made me feel the terror of the abuse and I suspect that as each reader starts this book, they will either put this down unable to read further due to the emotions, or they will read like I did, gripping the book tight, fearing each turn of the page but unable to put it down. Worth republishing and definitely worth reading.

Loved the book, and what an amazing price. I'd been looking for this book for a long time, and everyone was selling at ridiculous prices. I was quite pleasantly surprised to find it for the price I did.

I picked this up years ago at a book sale when I was in my teens. It is an unflinching, shocking look at child abuse that has stayed with me all these years. It's based on the true story of Sylvia Likens, a teen who was abused and murdered by people that were supposed to be taking care of her.

By Sanction Of The Victim does not pull any punches in the graphic, detailed descriptions of abuse and torture. If you have a problem watching crime shows? This is probably not the book you want to pick up off the shelf. But it's a powerful story for those that can handle it. (Pacing yourself helps; I remember putting it down and picking it up several times when I read it!)

I really wish that this book was available in re-prints, or as an .epub for the Kindle; it's the kind of book that deserves attention. I'm just glad it's available, however limited, so people can know more about it.

Nothing I have experienced has prepared me for what I read in this book. It is a very difficult book to read due to the subject content. However, the point of view from the child throughout the book gives the subject a different angle than some other works dealing with child abuse. It truly captures the thought process of a child whom has become accustomed to abuse and who nonetheless strives for acceptance. Warning to readers: the brutal violence in the book is not for everyone, especially those whom have difficulty reading about violence against children. However, it is an important work that will stay with the reader forever.

I read this book about 17 or 18 years ago, around the age of 9 or 10. I didn't like reading much, but this book turned that all around. I was experiencing my own abuse at the same time, so the book actually made me feel less "alone". I have never forgotten the name, the cover photo, or the contents of that book. It was so detailed, it was easy to picture exactly what was happening. It's sad that things like that really happen.
