Overview

(Applause Books). "There are many accounts of the Bingham family saga, but no other by someone who was there. For the first time, a gifted writer born into a family of inherited wealth and power takes us with her behind the doors of that patriarchal hothouse. Passion and Prejudice is a major step toward feminist change and democracy. By her courage and example, Sallie Bingham already has inspired women in powerful families to begin to revolt. What is wrongly seen now as a private war will be come the opening skirmish in a high-level revolution." Gloria Steinem

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly

'' A new section describes how it feels ``to be attacked by your own family.'' Photos. (Nov.)
