Summary

reissued with a new foreword and introduction by the authorA passionately argued, cogently written, lively discourse on the increasingly peculiarpolitics of sex.--New York Times Book ReviewDefending Pornography is valuable precisely because of its lucid,broad exploration of the long debate over pornography.--The Washington Post Book WorldA triumphant (and sensual) view of women that stands in stark contrast to thebleak vision of powerlessness and paternalism offered her critics.--The Wall Street JournalTraditional explanations of why pornography must be defended from would-be censors have concentrated on censorship's adverse impacts on free speech and sexual autonomy. In contrast, Nadine Strossen focuses on the women's rights-centered rationale for defending pornography.
