Reviews

"A major work of history, a classic . . . No one who reads it will come away untouched."--The Village Voice

"The most comprehensive 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

"Chilling and monumental . . . Deserves a place next to those rare books which force us to change the way we feel about what we know."--The New York Times Book Review

"This is a radical book in the truest sense of the word, a book certain to change the way we think, not just about the act of rape, but more fundamentally, about the relationships between men and women. . . . Brilliantly and convincingly argued . . . Against Our Will is thoroughly researched, carefully documented and lucidly written, a work of stunning originality which goes far beyond the statistics of rape to challenge some of society's most accepted assumptions. . . . A landmark work, one of the most significant books to emerge in this decade."--Houston Chronicle

"A definitive text, startling, compelling, and a landmark. . . . Brownmiller deserved much credit for being able to avoid radical rhetoric and sticking to excellent reporting in the face of such explosive findings . . . Against Our Will is a monumental work and a thoroughly chilling eye opener. It forced me to rethink my entire position as a woman and, in the process, it made me extremely uncomfortable--as it should."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"An overwhelming indictment. We need it, it is a hideous revelation and it should be required reading."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Chilling, monumental, exhaustive, detailed, absorbing and original. . . . Brownmiller's greatest contribution is establishing the continuity between rape and other facets of American culture."--Commonweal
