Additional Information

In the wake of recent violence our nation has experienced, and the paranoia that has ensued, we've directed our attention to potential terrorists in our midst. Yet our children face more risk from people they know than from terrorists they have never met. An estimated one in five girls and one in ten boys in the United States experience some form of sexual abuse by age eighteen. What could possibly motivate a person to molest a child? Not Monsters documents the stories of nine convicted child molesters through one-on-one interviews, listening to what offenders have to say about their crimes and exploring the roots of these behaviors from a social constructionist perspective. Their words paint a compelling and frightening portrait of how sexual abuse works in Western culture to perpetuate a political and social system of dominance and control.

I am not a medical practitioner and admit that I am interested in this topic as a screenwriter/filmmaker. As a parent of children, too, I am interesting. I consider ALL pedophiles an enemy and threat to children. I think these people are ill, but what concerns me is their rationalization about their actions and I cannot empathy with them as I don't believe that they take any responsibility for their actions. I don't believe they deserve to be cared for by the state, by the society. I believe the money it takes to keep them in a box and treat them like animals would be much better spent helping victims and helping children. I don't think they are normal. They deserve the death penalty. And I say this as I think there is a legitimate threat they ALL present to society and culture. I never thought I would advocate for the death penalty, but it should be implemented for certain individuals who are simply no good to society. As important this work is, and I can see this, I admit that I... Read more
"Not Monsters" is not for the average, casual reader, however for the psychological practitioner it is outstanding. Reading the offenders statements opens a window into the thought processes, emotions, and states of mind of these men. An excellent resource!
Dr. Schultz takes you into a world that few people are willing to enter with an open mind. My thoughts before reading were that all pedophiles are monsters and deserve the chair, but this book made me rethink that. Not only is it a collection of stories about child molesters, but Dr. Schultz shared some very personal stories as well. A must read!
