Idols of perversity

£9.99

Product description

Crossing the conventional boundaries of art history, sociology, the history of scientific theory, and literary analysis, the author unveils a view of a grim and largely one-sided war on women - a war whose battles are still being fought. The author was a Professor of Comparative Literature at UCL San Diego. One review of the book describes this works as "a witty and rewarding study of the 'iconography of misogyny' in late 19th Century culture'. This paperback edition has covers which are slightly worn and bent, and yellowed with age. Although there is some staining to the page edges, the pages - including the many illustrations - are clean with a bit of yellowing around the borders.
