Praise for Susan Brownmiller:
Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape:
"The most rigorous and provocative piece of scholarship that has yet emerged from the feminist movement. . . . May significantly change the terms of the dialogue between and about men and women."
"Chilling and monumental. . . . Deserves a place next to those rare books which force us to change the way we feel about what we know."
–The New York Times Book Review
"Susan Brownmiller has succeeded in that rarest and most difficult task: She has written a book that not only must be read but also is readable. As a literary experience this book is as excellent as its ideas."
–Chicago Tribune Book World
"Against Our Will is a work of stunning originality which goes far beyond the statistics of rape to challenge some of society’s most accepted assumptions. . . . A landmark work, one of the most significant books to emerge in this decade."
"A monumental work and a thoroughly chilling eye opener."
–St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Illuminating and informative. Miss Brownmiller has turned a treacherous subject into a lively and compelling book . . . essential reading."
–Carol Gilligan, The New York Times Book Review
"She eloquently tells stories many women will identify with."
–The Washington Post Book World
"A positive joy to read!"
–Nora Ephron, Chicago Tribune Book World
