It has become widely accepted that a series of high-profile child sexual abuse cases from the 1980s and early 1990s were “witch hunts.” Based on a comprehensive examination of primary sources, The Witch-Hunt Narrative: Politics, Psychology, and the Sexual Abuse of Children challenges the conventional wisdom about these cases.  Author Ross Cheit uses trial transcripts and related court documents to demonstrate that many of the cases at the core of the witch-hunt narrative involved compelling evidence of abuse.  Cheit will be speaking about his just-published book and the painstaking research that led him to challenge this narrative.


Ross E. Cheit
 is professor of Political Science and Public Policy at Brown University.
