MISOGYNIES has been greeted with acclaim ever since its publication in 1989. Covering a startling range of subjects, Joan Smith grapples with the hidden passion that distorts human relations: women hating, the secret ingredient of the sex war. In 1993 Joan Smith wrote two new essays for the revised edition, one of the misogynistic imagery of the Czech writer Milan Kundera and the other a commentary on the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings.
