Since its appearance in 1949, Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex has been a central text of feminist thought and the wider feminist movement. Always controversial, this book has arguably exercised more personal and plitical influence than any other work. Yet for all its direct impact, the book's arguments are elaborate and often difficult, and its range is immense. Its philosophical and historical origins are complex, and its literary and intellectual methods are subtle.
