The Feminists

by [WOMEN] COOPER, Parley J

Condition: See description

New York: Pinnacle Books, 1972. First Edition. Paperback. The prolific Cooper's best-known book, a dystopian future-world fantasy depicting a United States under the rule of a separatist feminist matriarchy, in which heterosexual sex is punishable by death and men are relegated to a servant's role. Predicts by 20 years the spirit, if not the letter, of Rush Limbaugh's coining of the word "Feminazi." A classic and lasting contribution to the field of mysogynistic literature. Paperback Original. 12mo (17cm); original pictorial wraps, all edges stained yellow; 188pp. Trivial bit of scuffing at top of spine, else a superlative unread copy, with edge-stain bright and even to all edges; no reading creases or other evidence of use. Uncommon thus.
