Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Subject to Debate, Katha Pollitt's column in The Nation, has offered readers clear-eyed yet provocative observations on women, politics, and culture for more than seven years. Bringing together eighty-eight of her most astute essays on hot-button topics like abortion, affirmative action, and school vouchers, this selection displays the full range of her indefatigable wit and brilliance. Her stirring new Introduction offers a seasoned critique of feminism at the millennium and is a clarion call for renewed activism against social injustice.

Synopsis:

Katha Pollitt has been delighting, outraging, and inspiring readers of her column in The Nation for close to two decades. There is nobody who can call bad behavior and sloppy thought to order with the same concision and daring as she. This selection displays the full range of her indefatigable wit and brilliance. Each of the more than eighty essays forms a part of a consistent and passionately argued larger vision. A stirring new Introduction by the author offers a seasoned critique of the state of feminism and urges us to put our principles into action.
