Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Social scientists choose sides, usually one emphasizing women's equality and the other emphasizing women's special needs, and trade views on procreation and female oppression, culture, welfare, Marxism and women's history, Foucault and sexuality, and Freud and repressed memory. Essays on Simone de Beauvoir's wartime writings and the male's search for a new identity remain unchallenged. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
