Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"... sophisticated, provocative, and thoroughly documented.... Strongly recommended... " —Choice

"... a welcome addition to the literature on this contentious issue." —Journal of Communication

"This book does an excellent job of portraying the complexity of the legal and philosophical debates among women about the status and effects of pornography, and it is an important interdisciplinary scholarly contribution for that reason." —Signs

In an attempt to advance our society’s debate on pornography beyond the current political and legal stalemate, these essays examine explicit portrayals of violence in pornography from multidisciplinary perspectives: history, literary criticism, religious studies, ethics, political science, film studies, law, and psychology.
