Books by Martha Roth

Emilie Buchwald, Pamela Fletcher, and Martha Roth

Originally published in 1993, this pioneering anthology is a powerful polemic for fundamental cultural change: the transformation of basic attitudes about power, gender, race, and sexuality. This edition updates statistics and essays, and adds new pieces on the Internet, the role of sports in sexual violence, and rape as a calculated instrument of war.
