I remember Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas and I remember the confirmation hearing being televised. The spectacle of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas occurred before my time. I was very young and in the military at the time so I had no real understanding of all of the politics and culture wars taking place in the chamber. Fast forward 23 years and this book is so very relevant. Especially after the recent death of Justice Scalia and the Senate Leader's response. After having watched HBO's 'Confirmation,' I was enamored by the scenario, yet knew that I was not fully comprehending all that was at stake in this public spectacle.

Take one overwhelmingly male-centered and predominantly white society, add huge portions of power, racism, sexism, a misinformed public and gross displays of injustice, and you've got a recipe for the American way. This collection of essays written at the time of the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings holds every bit of relevance now as it did nine years ago. Highlighting earlier civil rights legal battles and connecting their influence to the hearings themselves, each essayist examines in progressive detail just how pervasive--indeed, how dangerously latent--racism and sexism are in our society. How the volatile and often avoided issue of race can blind the equally volative and often dismissed issue of sexism in any race. In these essays, we are given a shockingly clear image of the circus that was the mishandling of the hearings. Explosive, revealling, and thought-provoking, this book yanks the proverbial rose-colored glasses from our collective American conscience and dares us to think for ourselves.
