Críticas:

In "Only Words..".Catharine MacKinnon makes a compelling, lucid and concise argument for reframing the debate over limiting pornography . -- Nina Schuyler "California Lawyer" In this thoroughly documented work, MacKinnon traces America's obsession with expressive freedom to the trauma of the McCarthy era...An entertaining read as well as a challenge to take another look at what constitutes freedom of expression. In "Only Words," MacKinnon presents the most lucid and concise presentation of her argument that porn is more than just words...Her argument is making significant legal inroads and, to understand where she would like to take us, "Only Words" provides a clear road map. In her most cogent and accessible book to date...MacKinnon lashes absolutists who maintain that all forms of expression including pornography and hate propaganda should be constitutionally protected. MacKinnon counters that pornography and hate messages do the same thing: enact the abuse. This book will almost certainly reconfigure the national debate over pornography, harassment, free speech, and equality. It merits careful study by scholars in rhetoric, communication, free speech, women's studies, and law--in fact, by anyone wishing to participate in the political and legal process as an informed citizen. -- Lester Olson "Quarterly Journal of Speech" In "Only Words,.".Catharine MacKinnon makes a compelling, lucid and concise argument for reframing the debate [over limiting pornography]. -- Nina Schuyler "California Lawyer" Three passionate, intellectually fascinating essays...[MacKinnon's] ideas are original and gripping, her references are wide-ranging, her legal logic is provocative--and her latest is must reading for anyone interested in either fairness or free speech. In "Only Words," [MacKinnon] presents the most lucid and concise presentation of her argument that porn is more than just words...Her argument is making significant legal inroads and, to understand where she would like to take us, "Only Words" provides a clear road map. "Only Words" is a deftly crafted indictment of an absolutist free-speech doctrine that is applied hypocritically and inconsistently to protect pornography and other acts of inequality.--Amy Willard Cross "Toronto Globe & Mail " MacKinnon's book is an eloquent plea to Americans to move beyond what she sees as the prejudiced limitations of current doctrine, in particular of current liberal doctrine.--Bernard Williams "London Review of Books " Only words, yet look at the responses, look at the rage directed toward the professor. These responses and the anger and fear that lurk within them have in a sense become part of the text of "Only Words"; to read them is to read a part of what MacKinnon aimed to show...MacKinnon's words have engendered real abuse, directed at her as a woman. In short, she has proved her point.--David C. Dinielli "Michigan Law Review " This little book might as well come with a fuse and matches, lighting a fire as it does under the complacent acceptance of pornography and inequality, racial and sexual, in this country.--Susan Salter Reynolds "Los Angeles Times " [This book] will almost certainly reconfigure the national debate over pornography, harassment, free speech, and equality. It merits careful study by scholars in rhetoric, communication, free speech, women's studies, and law--in fact, by anyone wishing to participate in the political and legal process as an informed citizen.--Lester Olson "Quarterly Journal of Speech " In "Only Words"...Catharine MacKinnon makes a compelling, lucid and concise argument for reframing the debate [over limiting pornography].--Nina Schuyler "California Lawyer "

Reseña del editor:

Pornography, racial, and sexual harassment and hate speech are acts of intimidation, subordination, terrorism, and discrimination, and should be legally treated as such. A powerful indictment of a legal system at odds with itself--with the First Amendment promoting the very inequalities the Fourteenth Amendment is supposed to end.
