Book Excerpt :

Susan Brownmiller’s groundbreaking bestseller uncovers the culture of violence against women with a devastating exploration of the history of rape—now with a new preface by the author exposing the undercurrents of rape still present today Rape, as author Susan Brownmiller proves in her startling and important book, is not about sex but about power, fear, and subjugation. For thousands of years, it has been viewed as an acceptable “spoil of war,” used as a weapon by invading armies to crush the will of the conquered. The act of rape against women has long been cloaked in lies and false justifications. It is ignored, tolerated, even encouraged by governments and military leaders, misunderstood by police and security organizations, freely employed by domineering husbands and lovers, downplayed by medical and legal professionals more inclined to “blame the victim,” and, perhaps most shockingly, accepted in supposedly civilized societies worldwide, including the United States. Against Our Will is a classic work that has been widely credited with changing prevailing attitudes about violence against women by awakening the public to the true and continuing tragedy of rape around the globe and throughout the ages. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as an Outstanding Book of the Year and included among the New York Public Library’s Books of the Century, Against Our Will remains an essential work of sociological and historical importance.

Book Short Summary:

"A Son is a son till he takes a wife; a daughter's a daughter all of her life."In AGAINST MY FATHER'S WILL, the reader follows Jane, an ordinary woman we can all identify with, as she metamorphosizes from captain of her high school cheerleading squad cheering only for males to feminist activist. Motivated by her experience at Smith College Jane aspires to become a modern, "liberated" woman, to break the housewife mold of her mother and her mother's contemporaries. That journey toward liberation entails painful conflict with her traditional father as she resists daughterly subordination, lawsuits against the sexism of her local government and country club, and always, an epic, internal battle to overcome culturally inculcated ideas of acceptability. When her father dies, she discovers that his Last Will and Testament favors her sister with the bulk of his estate, the family homes. Her principles and ideals collide with the searing emotional pain of rejection. Jane is left wondering if her father's Last Will and Testament is his final repudiation of her for her declaration of independence and equality.Filled with wit and heart, ultimately, Jane's memoir recounts the universal struggle to affirm and love oneself. It is her hope that her story will help other women recognize that the fight for dignity and equality rages not only without, but more deviously and crucially, within. Until the battle is won there, women are all still vulnerable to accept "less than" status.

Book Short Summary:

Life is the Darkness is a book of short stories, and a few pieces of poetry. I break the fourth wall, and all but a few are macabre, some are humorous and all are pieces of realism/surrealism. Some content can be confronting. It ranges from the innocuous, through to the inevitability of a barren earth, should humans continue to abuse her. There are so many things available to us, other than the manufacturing materials we currently use, to save our planet, while we still maintain a continued enjoyment, doing the things, we have become accustomed to. I'd like to leave my grandchildren a better world than the one we're leaving for our children today.
