5.0 von 5 Sternen A lady of class and integrity.
What a lovely, lovely woman and with what class does she tell her story! How unfortunate that we live in a country where sexual harassment is so difficult for men to understand, and yet so pervasively cruel and persistent! And how very unfortunate that such a man as Clarence Thomas now has so much power in our government, power that we know he can not be trusted...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to swallow
I had high hopes for this book. But half way through, Ms. Hill becomes unbelievable. She wants us to believe she fought hard to keep her name out of the situation when Thomas was nominated, then she turns around and wants us to belive she fought just as hard to testify! Alot of the book was dry reading...legal talk. Despite it all, I DO believe her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A lady of class and integrity., 29. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Taschenbuch)
What a lovely, lovely woman and with what class does she tell her story! How unfortunate that we live in a country where sexual harassment is so difficult for men to understand, and yet so pervasively cruel and persistent! And how very unfortunate that such a man as Clarence Thomas now has so much power in our government, power that we know he can not be trusted with. But how surprising is that really, today? Respect for women is hardly a qualification for office in the US Government, and it may never be if we don't all work together to make that difference -- and it's going to be a lot harder than it should be.
Anita Hill is a clear, calm, concise writer with a powerful story to tell. It is not easy to speak Truth to Power, but it is an essential element of making a difference. I honor all those who take the risk. I know how difficult it can be. I also know how very important it is. Anita Hill did not choose to be harassed, and she did not choose to be a weapon, but when called, she responed, and she told the truth, as awkward as it was for her. For those who would ridicule her ordeal, I can only say that no one should have to tolerate the inappropriate sexual behavior that exists in the workplace. We know it exists on the highest level. We know better than to say it couldn't be true. And we know Anita Hill got no pleasure from answering such personal, humiliating questions. She did what was expected of her, and it was *her* integrity that suffered, *her* career that wobbled while Clarence Thomas triumphed. His judgement leaves a lot to be desired, IMHO. I honor the efforts of Ms. Hill to honor the truth of her experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful and Rare, 29. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Taschenbuch)
The Republicans and other Conservatives who tired to destroy and assasinate the person of Anita Hill were unsuccessful. I found this book to be very deep and profound and allowed my to get to know Prof. Hill. Looking back at the the Hill-Thomas affair is now interesting....it had nothing to do with truth. It was pure partisan politics and nothing more. Unfortunately Prof. Hill was caught in that war and unfortunately America has a man of very low character sitting on its highest of courts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen At long last I could read the book I've waited for!, 28. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I found this book fascinating from beginning to end. I had been riveted to the TV during the hearings, and it was the same with the book. I have always felt that Hill was treated shamefully by first Thomas, and then the Senate. She was thrust into a political nightmare she had not expected, and reading the details of events that occured confirmed not only that, but much, much more. She was courageous and amazingly kept her dignity through the most undignified arena one could find themselves. I'm so grateful she was given the opportunity to tell the complete and compelling story--I hope it did her a world of good. It certainly made my day!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Anita Hill's words speak truth to seekers of truth., 30. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Speaking Truth to Power is a watershed work of honesty and simplicity. One greatly overlooked point explains how she came to the attention of the Senate Committee overseeing the confirmation of Clarence Thomas as Supreme Court Justice. She was sought out because of common knowledge of her experiences by several Washington "insiders". No radical feminist, she -- Anita Hill was never sponsored by anyone but herself. She stood up for truth because her integrity demanded it of her. The "powers that were" filtered out all but what they wanted to hear. As a result, the "spin" of Thomas' supporters came through much louder and clearer than the truth. She suffered. She was maligned. Man or woman, Democrat or Republican, Caucasian or other, human beings who have ears to hear cannot help but identify with her struggle.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Spin-doctoring of the highest level, 20. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Ms. Hill certainly can spin a tale. It's interesting tocontrast Anita Hill in 1997 to the Anita Hill we were presented backin 1991.

Is this the same Anita Hill who told the Judiciary Committee that her only motivation was to tell the truth, and that she would not profit financially from the Clarence Thomas situation? She also categorically denied that she would profit from any book deals.

Fast forward to 1997. Anita Hill has this book on shelf and another in the works. She commands speaking fees in the thousands per speech. What does this say about her credibility? Perhaps "Speaking Truth to Power" should be reclassified as fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Speaking Truth to Power, 25. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Hörkassette)
Prof. Hill should be a practicing trial lawyer. Speaking the Truth to Power made her case extremely well. If I was a juror, I would have no doubt in my mind that she was did the right thing for her country, her race, and herself. I applaud her courage and conviction to share her story with a insensitive, skepitcal, misinformed senate panel. Speaking the Truth to Power, is a watershed to all those who have ever been the victim of sexual harassment and ended up defending their integrity. Prof. Hill's story is compelling and riveting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent reading, 18. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Speaking Truth to Power (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The only problem with this book is that it brings back to life the anger and disbelief that I felt at the time of the hearings. Ms Hill is an excellent writer and has the ability to transmit the anguish that she experienced during this time. However, her gentle personality and honest demeanor come through in her writing, giving the reader a complete picture of what she experienced from her own unique perspective. It is important that our society be exposed to the other side of these hearings. I wonder if Clarence Thomas will take the time to read it. Apparently he prefers other types of literature.
