Needless to say, such is a passage that stays with you, particularly when it conjures up images of such events happening to someone you know and care about, as opposed to some faceless stranger or non-existent charatcer.
For those readers who think, perhaps, I am being overly-sensitive about a retelling of what is a fictional account, I remind you that events such as the one described above are hardly unheard of.
A well-respected movie was even made dealing with one somewhat-similar case. So, leaving aside my motivations for reading this book as well as my sordid past, what would I say about this effort? Well, first off, it's really good.
By that I mean that it is gripping, powerful, and meticulously well researched. Susan Brownmiller manages to provide an examination of rape that is historical, mythical, criminological, sociologicial, epidemiological, and feminst all in a single work. Such an achievement is remarkable in its own right, and becomes all the moreso when we realize that it was published in I have a copy of the large format softcover edition.
To accomplish such a dramatic work of scholarship at such an early point in the Women's Movement is truly outstanding. Susan Brownmiller deserves every ounce of fame this book has brought her. In more specific terms, I was impressed by her honest treatment of horrific incidents from recent American conflicts pg. In her way of thinking, the bodies of women become a sort of battleground used by the men in different groups in order to establish dominance.
Her recasting of rape, not as a crime of passion committed for purposes of sexual gratification, but as a crime of power, committed by men against specific women, women as a group, and rival men, represents a tremendous improvement over previous conceptions of the crime.
At the same time, I cannot say that I whole-heartedly approved of everything in the book. It is, of course, somewhat dated, particularly in terms of its references to popular culture. Such an issue is trivial, however, and could be easily solved with some discreet editorial additions or footnotes in later printings. On a more serious level, Ms. Brownmiller makes relatively crude arguments against statistical analysis For example a concluding remark that, "Statistical analysis is a valuable tool when it deals with reported crime.
Unreported crime, however, remains beyond the magic of computers. Indeed, Frans de Waal of Emory University explains, "The chimpanzee resolves sexual issues with power; the bonobo resolves power issues with sex. In all cases but the last, I think this is clearly a reflection of the time in which the book was written, and thus the criticisms are not severe.
It worked beautifully. And what. If they looked easy one would came. And who 96 And he was going to do. Buy cigarettes. Everybody had days. Good kicks. He smiled.
