With the same mix of interviews, reportage and analysis that gave his previous book Rage of a Privileged Class its acclaimed and respected perspective on the African-American middle class's fury, A Man's World addresses the confusion men are feeling as changing gender roles and expectations challenge the core of male identity. Many men today fear that their rights and roles are shrinking, that they are the new "endangered species": White men are prime targets for male-bashing; black men are considered a pathologically dangerous and endangered species; and Latinos are told their culture is irredeemably sexist.
Filled with revealing statistics and candid personal accounts, this book discusses such fascinating and troubling subjects as why men commit suicide in much higher numbers than women, how child custody disputes affect men, what happened to the men's movement, what intimate relationships are like in an age of sex codes and anti-date-rape campaigns and much more. An eye-opening guide for men navigating in an increasingly unconventional world.
