EHRENREICH, Barbara and ENGLISH, Deirdre
For Her Own Good. 150 Years of the Experts' Advice to Women.
Garden City, Anchor Press/Doubleday, 1978. Apparently a later printing of an early book by Ehrenreich, feminist and activist, and author of Nickel and Dimed, This Land is Their Land and Natural Causes, among others. This book surveys 150 years in which men controlled the dialogue in areas of medicine, law, economics, politics, marketing, and media. Signed by Ehrenreich. Remainder spray to the lower edge of the text block; slight push to crown; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with an internally-mended edge tear on the front panel. A key work in the development of a feminist critique of societal assumptions. Uncommon signed. [#033904] $75
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
