Intruders on the Rights of Men Reviews
It would be interesting to know the ways in which publishing has changed since this book was written.I was amused at the prediction of one industry insider, made in 1974, about what might have happened to books by the year 2000. 'Jane Trahey suggests 'Perhaps paper will be so rare, so expensive, the publishers will have to find a new way to publish, or they will perish.'Paper seems to have become cheaper, not more expensive, but half of that prediction is right; call it 2010, add Amazon and Apple, and we do now have a completely different publishing landscape. This makes the second prediction completely true.This book made me think about how the new publishing landscape benefits those who have been shut up previously. This includes women of course, and also minorities.
Very informative about misogyny in publishing throughout history, but with particular focus on the early 80s.
