About this product
- DescriptionIt is, in the words of the ted Iraqi dissident Kanan Makiya, a passionate, heroic effort to fathom the nature of a phemen that all too often drains us emotionally and incapacitates us intellectually. Millett analyzes the individual's monumental fear of the state through the rich literature of its expression-a mixture of literary text (Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago, Mathabane's Kaffir Boy, Bharadwaj's film Closet Land), the reports of witnesses, legal theory, and historical account. The literary version of their experience is the most arresting; it prevails and persuades with the greatest effect: the reality of the victim, the social and psychological climate of life under dictatorship, the moment of capture when one is disappeared, that pivotal electronic second after which thing is ever the same.
- Author BiographyAmong Kate Millett's other books are Flying Sita, The Basement, and The Loony Bin Trip. Millett is a founder of the Women's Art Colony in Poughkeepsie, New York. She also lives in New York City.
