Reviews

..."McCormick's work makes several important contributions to contemporary discourse on feminism, human sexuality, and women's (sexual) rights. Particularly valuable is her willingness to recognize that there is division within the feminist movement and her ability to present various perspectives in a lively and impassioned, yet remarkably unbiased, manner....The primary value of McCormick's book is as an in-depth introduction to past and present feminist discourse on women's sexuality and to the sexual attitudes and behaviors of marginalized groups of women....The converstional style renders the book delightfully "reader-friendly, ...""-Psychology of Women Quarterly "Concise, compassionate, and free of jargon and should prove useful in most libraries."-Library Journal "Naomi McCormick's Sexual Salvation is an accomplished blend of academic, clinical, and personal wisdom."- Journal of Sex Education and Therapy "McCormick attempts to reconcile the contrasting views of radical and liberal feminists on the nature of women's sexual experience. A successful attempt to integrate information based on research with more adversarial feminist literature to arrive at a more objective appreciation of women's sexuality. General; upper-division undergraduate; graduate; professional."-Choice "Emphatic and earnest, Sexual Salvation is a well documented wake-up call for anyone in sexology who has yet to examine the importance of feminism....an important contribution to the growing body of work by feminists within sexology. Implicitly and explicitly, Sexual Salvation demonstrates the need for a shift away from the rigidity of traditional sexology, genital focus, and goal orientation, and calls for a re-definition of sexology with a feminist perspective."-The Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality "Naomi B. McCormick examines what has become a divisive issue among feminists--sexuality--yet she does it in a manner that is inclusive and affirming of all women's sexual and intimate experiences. I found McCormick's style refreshingly personable and impassioned, yet she clearly owns her views rather than presenting them as truth or creed. I would recommend the book for Women's Studies and Sexuality courses and for readers wanting a feminist perspective of the issues sourrounding sexuality, eith for a class or for personal reading."-Feminist Collections ?Concise, compassionate, and free of jargon and should prove useful in most libraries.?-Library Journal ?Naomi McCormick's Sexual Salvation is an accomplished blend of academic, clinical, and personal wisdom.?- Journal of Sex Education and Therapy ?McCormick attempts to reconcile the contrasting views of radical and liberal feminists on the nature of women's sexual experience.

Safir University of Haifa, Israel "A landmark . . . it is comprehensive and open-minded . . . It truly celebrates cultural and sexual diversity. It is remarkably up to date . . . unusually "objective," yet courageously critical of much sex research and therapy."-From the foreword by Dr. Albert Ellis Institute of Rational-Emotive Therapy, New York City "In a period during which some of us become tongue-tied in our attempts to adhere to politically correct statements, McCormick has not written a politically correct book. She has provided a much more important service. She has written a book that displays sensitivity to the diversity of viewpoints surrounding the issues that she has tackled . . . In summary, I think that McCormick has managed to accomplish an extraordinarily difficult task."-Elizabeth Rice Allgeier, Editor The Journal of Sex Research and Professor, Bowling Green State University
