A Look Inside
Excerpts
Flap Copy
"Woman and Nature is about memory and mutilation, female anger as power, female presence as transforming force...Griffin has collected here the most apparently disparate materials [from lumbering manuals to gynecology texts] into an extraordinary collage which, for all the research and hard intellectual work underlying it, becomes an intense physical experience."--Adrienne Rich "My journey through the strange and familiar worlds of Woman and Nature has been strengthening and enspiriting. It is a book which I will read and re-read, assign to classes, give to friends. It is a work of great and daring vision."--Mary Daly

Appeared in Library Journal on 2000-09-15:
Written in 1979 when the feminist movement was in full throttle, this became a popular work in women's studies curricula. The feminist movement has since changed course, but Griffin is still beating the drum and in this rerelease offers a new introduction discussing where feminism is now. More for academic collections.
