By an everyday book reader on August 1, 2007

From the greatly admired author of The Work of Nations and The Future of Success, one of America's greatest economic and political thinkers as well as a distinguished public servant in three national administrations, a breakthrough book on the clash between capitalism and democracy.

The result is an expansive but eminently readable history of feminism, its political roots and objectives, and the case for its centrality to the future of women. She helps us understant that "feminist politics originated where capitalism, industrial growth, democratic theory, and socialist critiques converged."
