First published more than twenty years ago, Sexual Politics is one of the most important books ever written on the relationship between the sexes. It has become a classic and world bestseller, enduring not only for its power as a feminist statement but also a superbly reasoned and gracefully written work of literary and cultural analysis. In it Millett brilliantly and wittily writes about, amongst other things, sexual theroy, history, psychoanalysis - Freud and after - and analysis the writings of DH Lawrence, Jean Genet, Norman Mailer and Henry Miller. This revolutionary work shows how patriarchal bias is operated in our history and culture and is reflected in our mythology, religion, social mores and literature.
