Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Seven contributions offer analysis of contemporary, mass-marketed, heterosexual pornography. The authors operate on the assumption that an understanding of the phenomenon requires a consideration of three key elements: production, text, and consumption, each of which should be examined in a social, economic, and political context. Topics include the social and political history of the anti-pornography movement, narratives as a means of examining the effects of pornography use, and subordinating practices in pornographic films. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Important Work

    This book explores the dangers and destructions that pornography invites, causes, and perpetuates. It is powerful and important, and we must pay attention to the words here in order for our society to grow and become healthier.

    Overblown rheotric and unbsubstantiated data

    While I was hoping to recieve some supporting data on my theories of female suppression in the 20th century, this book left me wanting. The author throws up many points which would have been valid had he not overlooked many crucial elements of the equation. The author has much more research to do before he can expect anyone to take his arguments seriously.
