Male bosses, doctors, clergy, lawyers, professors and therapists who violate bonds of trust by having sex with females under their care or tutelage are the subject of this concise, valuable study by a Jungian psychiatrist based in San Francisco. In Rutter's diagnosis, a man who embarks on such relationships often sees women as nurturing, life-giving, sexually powerful, but his inappropriate erotic behavior harms him as well as the victimized woman, who, for her part, may fantasize that the ``forbidden zone'' affair will heal her deepest wounds and reawaken her true self. Rutter substantiates these observations through interviews and case reports. He offers guidelines to both men and women on how to avoid temptation and how to disentangle oneself if already involved. An appendix lists organizations to help women fight sexual exploitation. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (Oct.)
