Praise for The Macho Paradox

"An honest, intellectually rigorous and insightful work that challenges readers to truly engage in a political discourse that can change lives, communities and nations."

--Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabes

"Jackson Katz is an American hero! With integrity and courage, he has taken his message--that the epidemic of violence against women is a men's issue--into athletic terms, the military and frat houses across the country. His book explains carefully and convincingly why--and how--men can become part of the solution, and work with women to build a world in which everyone is safer."

--Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America, spokesperson, National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS)

"If only men would read Katz's book, it could serve as a potent form of male consciousness-raising."

--Publishers Weekly

"This book leaves no man behind when it comes to taking violence against women personally....After reading this book you can see how important it is to be a stand-up guy and not a standy-by guy, no matter what race or culture you come from."

--Alfred L. McMichael, 14th Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps and now serving as the Sergeant Major of NATO

"A candid look at the cultural factors that lend themselves to tolerance of abuse and violence against women."

--Booklist

"These pages will empower both men and women to end the scourge of male violence and abuse. Katz knows how to cut to the core of the issues, demonstrating undeniably that stopping the degradation of women should be every man's priority."

--Lundy Bancroft, author of Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men

Book Description Sourcebooks, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Recent studies tell us that between 1 in 4 and 1 in 6 American women will be the victim of rape or attempted rape in her lifetime. This is the first book to make the case that violence against women is a male issue as well as a female one-and that men who care have an obligation to better understand it and to do something about it. Pioneering anti-violence educator Jackson Katz offers cogent explanations for why so many men harass and hurt women-including those women closest to them-and he shows both women and men what they can do to stop the violence. The book incorporates the voices and experiences of women and men who have confronted the problem of gender violence from all angles, specifically highlighting what works and what does not work in dealing with this issue. By working together as allies, Katz shows both men and women how they can end the abuse and mistreatment of women. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1402204019
