Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A glance here, a flirtation there, a moment of  misunderstanding. Have the new rules of feminist  politics gone too far? Since Katie Riophe's book  The Morning After helped spark a  national debate over the politics of date rape, the  media has focused on controversial sexual behavior  of all kinds. Proponents of what has come to be  called sexual correctness contend that we live in a  culture where date rape, pornography, and sexual  harassment are simply facts of life that demand a  new sexual standard. Opponents argue that these  claims are born out of a victim mentality they see  as pervasive in the modern feminist movement that  threatens to rob women of the gains of sexual  freedom. As the successfull Dell title  Debating PC did in 1992, Debating  Sexual Correctness brings together some of  the best known and most important voices in this  debate. From the editorial pages of magazines as  diverse as The New Republic and  Glamour, The New York  Times and Playboy, the  country's most thoughtful social critics define or  debunk this very controversial notion of sexual  correctness. Katie Roiphe, Camille Paglia, Naomi  Wolf, Andrea Dworkin, Catherine MacKinnon, and Susan  Faludi are only a few of the writers in this  provocative anthology that looks at a highly charged  debate that has encompassed a nation.
