She's quite lovely and I enjoyed her participation on a panel, and it is quite difficult to separate the speaker from the writer, but the reliance on misdirection in order to make a point weakens the theoretical and activist tradition from within which and for which she writes.

I hate the one sided nature of this feminist propaganda Last I checked I made my own decisions I would not have made it past the first few pages of this book if it wasn't assigned reading.

First, briefly on the negative note.
Maybe also, fast forward 30 years since the book is published, I feel like the original and hu I felt overall this was a book I went between "am I wasting my time? Of course this point is independent of the book itself, but when someone makes any claim a while ago and you observe things went into a completely foreign direction, you naturally question. Briefly on the positive note next. I think in particular Morgan's personal experiences and the way she shares them with you in her powerful language makes you enrich yourself later. I see in particular her stories with her own past and her emotional journey with Palestine women make you feel, and also think as a human.
All in all, I'd say a book worth considering reading even if you struggle with some parts of it Feb 21, Jaye rated it really liked it. I was inspired to read this by the author's notes in one of Richard K. Morgan 's books. I'm sorry that I didn't read it sooner. There's a lot of important stuff here about the origins of terrorism, and the toxic brand of modern masculinity that fosters it's creation. Sep 18, Louise Pennington rated it really liked it.

Morgan is at her best reporting rather than normative theorizing.
Her reports from the West Bank are gripping and and important reminder of how voiceless so many women are.

Morgan's normative argument is that the Patriarchy itself is a terrorist paradigm and that all other "causes" are really derivative of the Patriarchy. It's a toxic culture she posits, in love with death rather than life. As she herself says, "this doesn't "prove" anything. Morgan is an incredibly driven scholar and her multi-discipline historical analysis of the Patriarchy is impressive if ultimately unpersuasive. But such is the allure and promise of the best feminist criticism, to be elucidating, to inspire debate without shouting about how damn right they are.

Sep 08, Rhondda rated it it was amazing. Excellent analysis of the women of the 60's who broke away from the sexist left men who regarded them as sex objects and domestic help. Morgan analysis the appeal of the men who were the radical left.
She steps into the universe of women and not accepting male analysis as truth for a woman. I liked this book because she was not radical lesbian separatist as so many went that way and who hated men and blamed them for everything. She does reject the sexism of these men, but has not given up on the Excellent analysis of the women of the 60's who broke away from the sexist left men who regarded them as sex objects and domestic help. She does reject the sexism of these men, but has not given up on the idea that there can be another way to work for the betterment all people.
She thinks about her soldier-lover again, remembering everything but his appearance, and realizes that she will not recognize him. She then unlocks her door and listens at the top of the stairs. She feels a draft, as if someone has left the basement through a door or a window. The rain has finally stopped.
You cannot render , you can only embrace if it means embracing to suffocation-point - something vast that is happening right on top of you.

She decides to carefully leave her house and rush to the local taxi stand. She hurries because she does not want to hear the clock strike seven, in case that is the hour for the mysterious meeting. The story ends when she arrives at the taxi stand and she notices that the taxi seems to be waiting for her. After entering the taxi, Mrs. Drover knocks on the glass behind the driver to get his attention.
The story centers on the perceptions and actions of Mrs. Kathleen Drover. When she finds a letter addressed to her in her abandoned London home, she thinks back to her former nameless soldier-lover during World War I. She is keenly aware of her surroundings: the atmosphere, weather, and particularly, a sense of strangeness.
The letter lying on the table compels her to imagine the various possibilities for how the letter got there in the first place. Because of the overwhelming sense of the strangeness of her situation, Mrs. Drover is a picture of stability and dependability. You need do nothing but wait. How did it get on the table? Who placed it there? Her house is obviously deserted and untouched, which makes the appearance of the letter even more enigmatic. To verify her own conception of reality, Mrs. Drover looks in the mirror, and she sees herself, looking familiar and reassuring.
Her mind races, however, back in time to her mysterious, nameless soldier-lover with whom she was in love as a young girl.

Bowen plays expertly with Mrs. It appears that Mrs. She appears to them as a strong, secure woman, but she has buried parts of herself deep in her own memory. She remembers, for example, her feelings toward her soldier-lover and the feelings of isolation that she experienced when she agreed to wait for him.
