Summary

Nudes from Nowhere is the history of the idea that women and land are analogous. From the earliest etiological myths, through British pornographic texts, to historical documents of colonization, this book documents the insidious results of feminizing nature and masculinizing culture. Nudes from Nowhere shows how both pornography and imperialism feed on those who lack the protection afforded by the privilege of race, class, or gender.
