it was amazing
Read in November, 2008

Outstanding comparison of fear-based sexual repression/oppression in fin de siecle and contemporary culture. At times it resembles a readable version of Faludi's Backlash. The book is nearly 20 years old but didn't seem dated. One of the very few books I've read that attempts to compare the end of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and does it well.
