Why were the social promises figured by sexual freedom in these texts consistently foreclosed by rape?Barnett argues that this literary phenomenon reflected tensions central to the historical moment.

Through a cultural studies analysis of key texts including Soul on Ice, Against Our Will, The Womens Room, The Women of Brewster Place, Meridian, and Deliverance, Barnett demonstrates how rape has been employed as a backlash against the very movements of dangerous desire that inspired these literary accounts--feminism, civil rights, black nationalism, and gay liberation.Provocative and courageous, Dangerous Desire dares to raise critical questions about the politics of desire, gender, race, and sexuality in this watershed era.
