About the Author

Linda E. Ledray holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and personality research and is a registered nurse. A licensed psychologist and fellow of the American Academy of Nursing, she is the founder and director of the Minneapolis Sexual Assault Resource Service and has been working with rape survivors for twenty years. She lives in Mound, Minnesota.


YA A comprehensive, unemotional and honest presentation of how to deal with the aftermath of a rape. The book is addressed to the rape victim and the significant others in her life. Ledray, a registered nurse on the staff of a sexual assault center, provides clear, detailed information on all aspects of rape: dealing with the police, obtaining medical care, counseling and what to expect from the legal system. The emotional responses normal to a rape victim and those close to her are discussed extensively, and this section should be of great help to anyone in this situation. Since Ledray feels that rape is sociocultural in origin and therefore not likely to be eradicated, she provides practical strategies for self-protection and prevention. A state-by-state list of rape crisis centers is included. Marlene M. Kuhl, Baltimore County Public Library

Director of the Minneapolis Sexual Assault Resource Center, the author offers a guidebook for rape victims. In a matter-of-fact yet sympathetic tone, she discusses the rape itself, emergency medical treatment, how to report the crime to the police and avenues of legal redress. Ledray focuses as well on the rape victims' loved ones, who are considered by many to be secondary victims, and she suggests ways to prevent rape. Also of use: national listings of rape crisis centers and additional reading. (April)

Based on the author's experience at the Sexual Assault Resource Service in Minneapolis, Recovering from Rape is a handbook for both rape victims and the ``significant others'' in their lives. Major areas discussed include the myths surrounding rape and why they continue; police, medical personnel, security precautions, and rape crisis centers; post-rape trauma; recovery; child sexual assault; the legal system; and the rapist. Although there are many books on rape, the unique aspect of Ledray's book is the depth and breadth of material written expressly for the victim's friends and family dealing with their beliefs, actions, and fears. Included is a list of rape crisis centers in the United States. Highly recommended. Frada L. Mozenter, Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte Lib.
