A must-read for those who believe he truly loved children but are not so sure about his innocence...Michael Jackson spent the wedding night of his second marriage not with his bride but with his best man a€“ an eight-year-old boy. His first marriage ended in divorce after he had been on holiday with two young boys a€“ without his wife. To kneejerk loyalists, the King of Popa€™s love of children was innocent: end of story. For the more reflective among us, whether we are intrigued, baffled, appalled, empathic, or even all these things, Michael Jacksona€™s Dangerous Liaisons provides the definitive review of his numerous a€˜special friendshipsa€™.Armed with insights from a range of disciplines a€“ psychology, sociology, moral philosophy a€“ Carl Toms spent many years researching the megastara€™s a€˜boy-lovea€™. He delves deeply into the sources of Michaela€™s enigmatic identity, soul and genius a€“ while keeping a sceptical eye on the assumptions and values of the Kinga€™s detractors.Tomsa€™ is the only book to examine thoroughly Michaela€™s trial on child abuse charges without losing sight of the increasingly well documented a€“ but surprisingly little known or understood a€“ facts about earlier allegations. It exposes the falsity of persistent efforts to whitewash the record by inventing for Michael a phoney a€˜normala€™, or a€˜plain vanilla gaya€™, sexuality. The author probes Michaela€™s intense identification with Peter Pan, the eternal boy, acknowledging the profound significance of this attachment but discarding the welter of dated Freudian psychobabble it has spawned.
