Reviews

'An important and urgent book, Princenthal's trenchant, honest, complex exploration of the radical representations of sexual violence in the 1970s delineates the upheaval of implicit assumptions about rape, bodies, silence and speech in particular works by individual artists in light of their broader artistic and political meanings and lasting consequences. I read it with breathless, captive attention' - Siri Hustvedt
'Takes a tangled history and weaves it into an elegant account' - International New York Times
