Book and that this was A So Called Booming Economy so called booming economy was making men feel this way It s little surprise that these feelings broke out into the mainstream after a horrific recession Her men try religion going to war working with their hands working in pornos losing themselves in sports fandom writing action books but no matter what they try they feel like they are less of a man than their father s generation since they are playing by the same assumptions and rules that really don t apply to them There is no longer a common enemy to nite against and the ones they come From Beautiful Zion to Red Bird Creek up with don tite work the way Nazis did On top of that loyalty is a fool s game in modern corporate America and factory jobs can barely get you a living wage The men are trapped in an ideology with no easy way out and are therefore susceptible to demagoguery that promises easy fixes and yes common enemies to rally against Faludi warns Sex, Rock Optical Illusions us about the trap and discusses solutions to the problem Perhaps men can start asking hardestions and reach down deep within themselves and see that they aren t so different than feminists after all They are both trapped in fake gender roles that are impossible to fulfill and are egged on by a consumerist society of marketing that promises them that attaining manhood or femininity is just a purchase away It will be the toughest battle yet but what if the struggling man stops looking for easy answers and slips his way out of the trap and instead of judging himself by how many pterodactyls he whacks with his club before dragging them home for his wife to cook he actualizes himself in a humanist project that transcends gender and thereby would also remove himself as an obstacle in the struggle for female euality Or he could just stay bitter put on a red cap and try to vote his way into a past that never existed For men and women alike Faludi asks a powerful From Mistress to Wifey uestionWhy haven t men stoodp to a cultural stereotype and the culture it supports which is systematically destroying them economically and by default emasculating them in the most heinous of manipulations encouraging them to blame themselves Her investigation is thorough actually compassionate and supportive of healthy masculinity she painstakingly details and profiles the many ways that modern American cor It s an interesting book and a compassionate one too but it s ltimately a failure to me For a book whose title proclaims it to be about a betrayal it spends very little time on the subject of the betrayers concentrating instead on the problems of the betrayed Not that these problems are not real or worthy of study just that this is a book about symptoms not causes Indeed even its diagnosis of symptoms is incompleteFaludi repeatedly fails to come to grips with the how and why of the title s betrayal This is a book about two generations of men baby boomers #and gen x ers It conspicuously fails to interrogate the men who were these men s fathers and grandfathers or to #gen x ers It conspicuously fails to interrogate the men who were these men s fathers and grandfathers or to why they did what they did It shies away any time it gets close to portraying the true villains who get to remain mostly faceless corporate and government functionaries as if downsizing and asset stripping are merely weather conditions whose cause cannot be guessed at The fact that with one exception rags to riches story Sly Stallone every rich man who appears in this book is shown to be callous and duplicitous apparently fails to register on Faludi who talks in the conclusion of the men s struggle as being different from the women s primarily in lacking an easily identifiable enemy On the contrary the enemy is identified several times in the book but Faludi apparently fails to recognise him every timeThat said if you want to read about how the last few decades worth of social and economic trends have affected a somewhat representative sample of American men this is your book But this is a book that raises estions than provides answers and I d like it a lot if I didn t get the nagging feeling that the lack of answers is due to a certain Dance With The Devil unwillingness on the author s part to think too deeply about theestions Faludi almost outdid Backlash The Undeclared War Against American Women here documenting the way brutal sex role stereotypes caught p to the XY chromosomes of the species The betrayal is that men thought

Susan Faludi is brilliant She is without a doubt one of the most skilled insightful and nuanced investigative journalists of our time I would say that her work often crosses over between journalism and anthropology She has an incredible knack for getting to the heart of the story for getting people to open p to her and share what s really going on in their lives and cultures She is the most thorough writer I have ever read I mean she puts guys like Malcolm Gladwell to shame and tackles every story from all the angles each with the same depth and forthrightness She avoids assumptions and stereotypes is open to every idea and possibility and formulates complex sophisticated analyses that are both intelligent and ethical She never compromises on her feminism or on her morality and at the same time she can sit with people of every background and every ilk including rapists megalomaniacs and marginalized men and treat every one like a human being deserving her Lay My Burden Down utmost respect listening to to every one with patience and sincerity and bringing out in each one the depth and a vital human story She is an artist an artist of society and the human condition I want to be Susan Faludi when I growp I mean seriouslySO I actually read this book years ago but it has stayed with me and has influenced so much of how I look at society especially narratives around Vérité (Love at Center Court, us regarding men and masculinity What prompted me to write this review now is the death of Neil Armstrong Susan Faludi s chapter on Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldridge was heart wrenching And it left me completelynable to listen to the rhetoric of space travel the same way again The idea that it is all driven by this ornamental masculinity by image and glitz over substance is just overwhelming Once you read Susan Faludi there is no going backAnd since she wrote this book nothing has changed in Western society If anything the culture has gotten worse Men are now Beyond the Qumran Community under the patriarchal microscope too Notite as much as women But stillSusan Faludi Brilliant Just brilliant If she were to run for president I would totally vote for her This was nearly as good as Backlash She interviews a wide range of men in America from Stallone to a group of men who dress as dogs to go to football matches There is a description of a men s group that put me off the idea of going to a men s group for life If there was ever a book to show that the feminist revolution is about the liberation of men too this is it Once Daniels Pet upon a time No After World War II American soldiers returned home with a legacy and a dream to pass on to their sons Space exploration Academia Scientific research Art The American sons built on that legacy They were a great generation because the DID something They BUILT somethin Why did so many white men vote for Donald Trump Why did they hate Clinton with such a passion What are all these guys so mad aboutYou could do worse than reading this book from the 1990s to see a remarkably consistent thesis driven home by character studies of struggling men It shows how baby boomers were broughtp in a consumerist paradise and told that they would have what their fathers did a life full of adventure conuering enemies a well paying job and a family to of adventure conuering enemies a well paying job and a family to as long as they were loyal and worked hardInstead they got Vietnam #Corporations Laying Them Off And #laying them off and diminished feeling of masculinity which they blamed on Losing Control useful scapegoats like the feminist movement and immigrants This books starts offite strongly The first 3 4 chapters were fascinating and really brought brought to life these hard luck men you could see why they would feel betrayed One chapter really boiled down all of the white working class grievance when laid off men pontificated on how much better America was back in their father s day She even interviews somebody who wanted those great times back by ominously yearning for what he called variously and approvingly a police state a dictatorship or a controlled environment a state in which the old system would be reimposed his status restored and the reins of authority returned to a benevolent but firm white male management The racial attitude that he shared with others at the center buttressed a masculinity based on exclusion and privilege Keep in mind that that Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (light novel) uote is from 1995 or so when she was doing research on this. One of the most talked about books of recent years in Stiffed the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Backlash explores the collapse of traditional masculinity that has left men feeling betrayed With Backlash in 1991 Susan Faludi broke new ground when she put her finger directly on the problem bedeviling women and the light of recognition dawned on millions of her readers what's making women miserable isn't something they're doing to themselves in the name of independence It's something our society is doing to women The book was nothing less than a land.
