Publisher Comments:

Irene Diamond has written a passionate and provocative book that challenges the feminist movement to step beyond its preconceptions. . . . We desperately need this synthesis. -from the Foreword by Starhaw

In a wide-ranging critique of Western thought and practice, ecofeminist Irene Diamond raises unsettling questions about the ethic of control that permeates how we think about fertility, sexuality, agriculture, and the environment.

Synopsis:

Political scientist Irene Diamond makes an urgent call to feminists and environmentalists to recognize the dangers of technological control over women's bodies and of the earth. "One of the most provocative and original feminist books in years. . . . Diamond poses important questions and breaks ground for new thought about them".--BOOKLIST. Bibliography. Index.

Synopsis:

Irene Diamond challenges Western feminism's emphasis on fertility control and reveals the masculine and mechanistic assumptions that underlie it. She makes an urgent call for feminists and environmentalists to recognize the dangers of technological control over women's bodies and the earth.
