It is 2048 BE; the Anonyma Network, represented by a young philosopher known affectionately as Annie, offers this 50th anniversary edition of Mary Daly's revolutionary work of Radical Elemental Feminism, "Quintessence ... Realizing the Archaic Future." Mary Daly has, for the past 30 years, been at the forefront of radical feminist thinking. Here she exposes and examines the abuses women face at the end of the 20th century - for example, the dangerous rhetoric of the Promise Keepers; the systematic rape of women in war zones like Bosnia; and the invasive manipulation of women's bodies and all of nature in genetic engineering, fertility experiments, and cloning. But she also offers a "Far-Out Vision and Hope for Wonderlusting Women" who are beginning to discover Quintessence: Spirit that fills the universe and gives it life and vitality.

Publishers Weekly, 1998-08-17 Extending her work in Gyn/Ecology and Pure Lust, Daly here proposes new tools for defusing the weapons of patriarchy. Flashing forward into 2048 via the channelings of a young feminist named Annie, Daly finds that a group of women is planning on publishing a "50th anniversary edition" of Quintessence, which would also mark the 200th anniversary of the first Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, N.Y. This fictional device can be too precious, especially when the channeled author begins dancing with Annie's pets and sighing over the "patriarchal paralysis" of the late 20th century. However, it does present Daly's ideas in an accessible, amusing form. The parts of the book centering around contemporary issues are rife with straight political commentary mixed with fanciful eco-feminism and Daly's inimitable wordplay. With clarity and precision, she discusses the rhetoric of the Promise Keepers, the use of rape by the military in Bosnia and Rwanda, the threat of biological control that cloning could bring and the oppression of women by academia. An associate professor of theology at Boston College, Daly illuminates connections among mythology, religion and sociopolitical events with a piercing gaze and a pointing finger (and New Age-y illustrations by Sudie Rakusin). But she is less effective when her careful speculations careen into stream-of-consciousness manifesto, replete with changing vocabulary and flights from the text's point. For Daly fans, this is a must; others will find that her fast and furious ideasæhowever "biophilic"æinduce a serious theory hangover, and will be content to wait for the 50th-anniversary edition.
