Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Having greatly enjoyed this book, I'm a bit bothered by how weak-kneed its defenders are. They talk lovingly of Hamilton's artistry and about how beautiful the girls are, but then they say, "But it's not pornography!" or "But it isn't erotic!" Please give me a break, it is "pornographic" and it is "erotic". If you don't think so, you probably need to speak with a psychologist about your repressed feelings. The important question is why the book's defenders feel the need to claim that the book isn't what it is.
There should be no shame in admitting that the artist's intent in creating these images is to inspire sexual feelings for his subjects. Can one look, for example, at the photo on page 140 (captioned "Am I only 15? Am I really still a silly little school girl?") and not feel some twinge of longing? Is that not the dictionary definition of "pornography" or "erotic"? Now I can certainly agree that it is not "hard-core" pornography, but why is the term "pornography" being treated as a pejorative in these reviews?
It's really quite sad that over the past couple decades Americans have become so phobic about children's sexuality that even people who enjoy and appreciate this book cannot bring themselves to admit it. Meanwhile, most of the critical reviews posted here don't even indicate that the writers have actually looked at the book, they just know it's "bad" or "evil" because it suggests that children might be human beings along with all that implies. This book is a daring last line of defense against the utter pablumification and disneyfication that threatens to consume American culture. I would strongly encourage anyone to read this book to challenge the prevailing cultural mores of puritainism.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I find it interesting and in some ways disturbing how few (openly at least) female viewpoints are expressed among the reviews of this book. Indeed, some of reviews make it appear that there are quite a few males out there who believe females are a sexual "tabula rasa" on which they can write their judgements of what constitutes morally appropriate behavior.
This book must be understood not simply as art, but as a psychological statement, namely that sexuality exists within each of us from infancy on and parents and society deny that at their own risk.
When I was the age of the girls in this book there was no one with the courage to come forward and openly depict the flowering of female sexuality. I lived with confusion and shame about my body and my desires, hurtful feelings that lasted until I was well into my adulthood.
I came across this book in a store one day while looking for something else. I spotted the title and I vaguely remembered a news story about some people wanting to ban it, so I thought I would look at it out of curiosity. The images in it were so beautiful I almost started to cry right there, it was as though I found vindication for the very core of my being.
After taking it home, I decided to share it with my nine-year old daughter with whom I had just recently had "The Talk". It was wonderful being able to show her how her body would change and how she would be beautiful even as she changed from a girl into a woman. It is true there are already books out there that are supposed to address the issue, but so often they take a clinical approach that is scary in its own right.

This book will shock some, as they will call art child pornography (when did the human body become vulgar?) and some will be thrilled with the quality of this artistic expression. I agree with another rewiewer that recommends "Life and Death on the Internet" by Keith A. Schroeder. Any serious view of this book requires deeper study of the legal issues surrounding Mr. Hamilton's work. We should respect the human body and admire the work of perfect creation. Get both books and enjoy. They are well worth your time.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm a devout Christian, and when I first heard on a Christian talk radio show that I listen to that Amazon.com was peddling child pornography, it raised my ire. I went home, and, as instructed by the radio talk show host, began to write an angry threatening letter to Amazon.com. My teenage daughter who I love and cherish in spite of our admit generational gap issues, asked me why I was writing a critical letter about a title I had never read. Well -- sometimes us older folks need to listen to our children. I put the letter on hold, and agreed to take a look at the book. While I didn't go out of my way to find it, I happened upon it at a bookstore the following day. And I have to admit -- this is NOT pornography at all. The poses of these beautiful young women is not at all provocative or seductive or arousing. This is art that shows the beautiful body that the Lord created. I don't understand the criticism, and am truly sorry that I nearly sent off an ignorant letter. If you're considering criticizing this book, I suggest that you READ it first! Though you may not like it, you may very well decide that this is NOT as bad as some of those organizing letter-writing campaigns are saying.
