Condition: Good

A secondhand book that has been read but is in good condition. Very minimal damage to the cover, including very minor scuff marks and creasing, but no holes or tears. The majority of pages are undamaged, with some minor creasing but no tearing. No pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. No missing pages. Some of the pages are starting to discolour, very slightly, around the edges. An aged but clean and solid copy.

Product Details:

"In the autumn of 1992, two young women students at Melbourne University went to the police claiming that they had been indecently assaulted at a party. The man they accused was the head of their co-ed residential college. The shock of these charges split the community and painfully focused the debate about sex and power.

'This is writing of great boldness and it will wring the heart... an intense, eloquent and enthralling work...'-THE AUSTRALIAN

'This was never going to be an easy book to write, its pages are bathed in anguish and self-doubt, but suffused also with a white-hot anger...'-GOOD WEEKEND

'Travelling with Garner along the complex paths of this sad story is, strangely enough, enjoyable. The First Stone [is] a book worth reading for its writing...'-SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

'... Garner has ensured one thing: the debate about sexual harassment... will now have a very public airing. And it will have it in the language of experience to which all women and men have access...'-THE AGE"
