Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A women's rights-centered rationale for defending pornography
Traditional 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.
Reissued with a new foreword and introduction by the author.
Previous ed.: 1995.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
