New York : Simon and Schuster, 1975, 1975. Very Good. 472 p. ; 25 cm ; ISBN: 0671220624; 9780671220624 LCCN: 75-12705 ; LC: HV6558; Dewey: 364.1/53; NLM: HV 6558 B885a 1975 ; OCLC: 1324585 ; brown cloth with dustjacket ; "The most comrpehensive study of rape ever offered to the public...It forces readers to take a fresh look at their own attitudes toward this devastating crime." --Newsweek ; The feminist book par excellence, by one of the Movement's leading theoreticians, about the crime only males can commit--rape. From a feudal lord's ""first night"" privileges with his female serfs to a Southern plantation owner's easy access to his slaves, from ancient Troy to Vietnamese hamlets, everywhere soldiers have marched into conquered lands, the strong and the rich have systematically oppressed the weak and the poor, preferably (but not always) those of other races, creeds or nationalities, usually women, but also slightly built young men in prisons. Brownmiller shows how rape has its genesis in power (and the need to preserve the appearance of power) rather than eroticism. It is as much a function of the strange byways of male dominance and bonding as it is an expression of contempt for the female victim: early Babylonian law was concerned with the loss of the bride price associated with the marriage of an ""unspoiled"" virgin; rape was avenged not by punishing the rapist, but by violating his wife in turn. And on up through the present, where the author demolishes many of the convenient male myths concerning the crime by using law enforcement statistics from a variety of locales.; Contents: A personal statement -- The mass psychology of rape -- The beginning was the law -- War: World War I, World War II, Bangladesh, Vietnam -- Riots pogroms and revolutions: THe American Revolution, Pogroms, The Mormon persecutions, Mob violence against blacks-the KKK, Mob violence against whites-The Congo -- Two studies in American history: Indians, Slavery, The Cliometricians -- The police-blotter rapist: Pairs, groups and gangs, Gratuitous acts, extravagent defilements, rape-murder -- A question of race -- Power: institution and authority: Prison rape, the homosexual experience, Police rape, The sexual abuse of children -- The myth of the heroic rapist -- Victims: the setting: the conscious rape fantasy -- The beautiful victim -- Blonde ex-showgirl slain in hotel suite -- Confessions: he made me do it -- Victims: the crime -- Women fight back. ; VG/VG
