Feminism and pornography

"Feminism and Pornography seeks to expand the parameters of the debate on pornography. This collection of essays offers an understanding of what pornography means to those who consume it, fight against it, work within it, and to those engaged in changing its meaning. It presents divergent points of view to address the complexity of sexual material and, by discussing the relationship between imperialism, the exotic, and the pornographic, the collection moves away from Eurocentric perspectives on pornography."--Jacket
