Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thoroughly fascinating.--New York Post

Review:

"This is a pleasant blend of intellectual approach and titillating subject matter. The author combines a detached, conservative point of view with a lot of research and a lively, witty style. The long, illustrated volume includes many entertaining anecdotes and digressions on philosophy, and several interesting conclusions, one of which is that periods of excessive emphasis on sex, such as this one, coincide with widespread social purposelessness. The book is, however, rather depressing for a feminist reader, since, as Tannahill points out over and over, women have been subjugated ever since men first discovered their own role in procreation." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
