"Dissent and inconvenient information are kept within bounds and at the margins, so that while their presence shows that the system is not monolithic, they are not large enough to interfere unduly with the domination of the official agenda." We're revisiting Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky's 1988 classic, Manufacturing Consent, in light of this week's NY Mag media criticism feature.

HardcoverHearts This is such an important book. 4y

Tonight we joined Elle in kicking off Women's History Month with Rebecca Traister at The Cooper Union. Traister's phenomenal new book traces the rise of women's political and social power & pulls at the threads of its implications for the future.

The Cosmopolitans | Sarah Schulman

We're currently enjoying the newest dispatch from the incomparable Sarah Schulman, utterer of the immortal gem, "You have to notice the truth in order to be able to avoid it."

A Bad Character: A novel | Deepti Kapoor
post image

Seeking a literary/musical wine-and-cheese pairing? We recommend Deepti Kapoor's milk-and-acid-tongued novel of womanhood in contemporary India with Wye Oak's perennially layered, candy-fisted Civilian.

My Life on the Road | Gloria Steinem
post image

In Bookforum's holiday issue, novelist Lucy Ellmann recounts one of our favorite points from Gloria Steinem's new book: It IS a bit silly for women to stay at home when that's where they're statistically most likely to be murdered.

Need a book that intelligently speaks to the nostalgia cravings that plague us (and our waistlines) at the holidays? May we recommend...

As observed by Choire Sicha in our holiday issue, "There's seemingly a whole necessary category of book that is too smart to be exploitative, too wise to have pat solutions, and too distressing to recommend."
