(h) Wilhelm Reich escaped Nazi Germnay only to be hounded and imprisoned for his writings in America -- becoming the only writer in US history to have his books burned by the US government. His focus on criminal behavior as a form of sexual pathology got him in trouble. His pointing to preventing children from genital gratification (masturbation) as a major component of sexual pathology was not well received by post WWII America which totally misinterpreted what he was aying. Now, fifty-plus years later, we can read his writings and realize his censors seem to have been responding to their own sexual panic rather than the ideas Dr Reich proposed. A brilliant work.
