BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: April 23, 1991

"Abstract and intellectualized, but intriguing for its reasoned assault on the philosophical underpinnings of society."
Here, Fox-Genovese (Humanities, History, & Women's Studies/Emory Univ.; co-author, Fruits of Merchant Capital, 1982) collects highly philosophical arguments (all but one chapter previously published in learned journals) comprising a ``feminist critique on the theory of individualism,'' that system of thought in which ``rights'' are ``grounded in the individual.'' Unfortunately, although Fox-Genovese insists that ``feminist history must retain its engagement with women in the world,'' the book itself is grounded in citations rather than human experience.

``Today, women's `problem that has no name' is children.'' Fox-Genovese's chutzpah-filled appropriation of Betty Friedan's famous phrase sums up her case for more family-friendly social policies. Read full book review >
