Summary:Annotation Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Feminism has been one of the most important and radical movements in ideas and in society over the last 40 years. Yet the roots of modern feminist and post-feminist thought stretch back much further than the 1960s. This Pocket Essential looks at the important names in the history of feminism, from Mary Wollstonecraft to Germaine Greer, and at the most significant texts, from John Stuart Mill'sThe Subjection of Womento Betty Friedan'sThe Feminine Mystiqueand Naomi Wolf'sThe Beauty Myth. It explores the history of feminist thought and the wide range of debate and discussion in contemporary feminism.
