Summary
"The theme of this book is intervening in the process of social change through legal change. The book consists of 28 chapters with introductory and concluding essays by Catharine MacKinnon. All develop the author's signature theme: that one cannot think that the way the law approaches things is all there is to knowing about them. The focus of the argument is that some wrongs (to women) may not yet be intelligible as legal wrongs, and that social problems (of oppression) may yet have no adequate legal approach. The collection makes an ideal introduction to the writing and thinking of this foremost legal scholar"--
