bookshelves: self-defense

Much less satisfying and thought-provoking than Meditations on Violence...which frustrated me, as I feel much more sense of alliance with Snortland, a feminist activist and self-defense teacher. But too much of a simplistic cheerleaderish tone, bordering on Naomi Wolff at her worst, complete with bad and oversimplified analogies. Worth it for the stories and the sense of hyperactivity and outrage that she projects.
