Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Screening Sex is a truly remarkable follow-up to Linda Williams's groundbreaking book Hard Core. It reaffirms her place as the leading feminist scholar of the history and theory of on-screen sex. Not that it was ever in doubt.-- Jane Gaines, author of Fire and Desire: Mixed Race Movies in the Silent Era
