For Adult Users Only: The Dilemma of Violent Pornography (Everywoman)

For Adult Users Only: The Dilemma of Violent Pornography (Everywoman) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"... 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.

Book News Annotation:

Proceedings of an international symposium held during the XII World Congress of Asthmology, Barcelona, 1987. Ten contributions survey the present status of inhalation therapy in relation to a new long-acting compound, formoterol. Its efficacy, tolerability and duration of action have been found to compare favorably with those of existing compounds used by adults and children. No index. Papers of a seminar held at Indiana University on the broad questions of the relationship between pornography and violence against women in society. Cloth edition ($39.95) not seen.
