9781845401092: The Woman Racket: The new science explaining how the sexes relate at work, at play and in society

His first book, The Great Immigration Scandal (2004), blew the whistle on abuses within the Home Office and led to the resignation of the immigration minister, Beverley Hughes. Although attacked at the time by the government and the 'liberal' media for alarmism, Moxon's analysis has now been adopted by most of the major political parties. Indeed his views on the dangers of multiculturalism were even echoed by the Chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, leading the Evening Standard to claim 'Moxon appears not so much a racist as a visionary'. But immigration was never his primary interest, in fact he joined the Home Office in order to study its HR policy, as part of a decade-long investigation of men–women. This book is the result. Notwithstanding its provocative title, The Woman Racket is a serious scientific investigation into one of the key myths of our age – that women are oppressed by the 'patriarchal’ traditions of Western societies. Drawing on the latest developments in evolutionary psychology, Moxon finds that the opposite is true – men, or at least the majority of low-status males – have always been the victims of deep-rooted prejudice. As the prejudice is biologically derived, it is unconscious and can only be uncovered with the tools of scientific psychology. The book reveals this prejudice in fields as diverse as healthcare, employment, family policy and politics: compared to the long and bloody struggle for universal male suffrage, women were given the vote ‘in an historical blink of the eye’.

Review:

"Steve Moxon's book, The Woman Racket, has certainly taken the UK men’s movement, and perhaps even the world’s men’s movement, by storm... The Woman Racket transcends its flaws, densely packed as it is with deep, original analysis even of relatively well-known information, as well as much new, relatively well-founded information. From the opening page, we know we are in for a treat... The book is not without its shortcomings. Moxon’s reference at the start of chapter two to the 'profound insight' to which he asserts his books will lead is both premature and annoying self-aggrandizing... Moxon is, by turns, boring, irrelevant, annoying, and brilliant."

(Steven Svoboda)

"The sex war is over, and no-one has won. Mind you, the Woman Racket may lead to a resumption of hostilities."

(Iain Macwhirter Sunday Herald)

"The Woman Racket will fascinate you as it teaches you how social scientists have gotten it wrong and how feminists have gotten it backwards. The Woman Racket is an extraordinarily thoughtful, erudite, well-researched, politically incorrect and courageous journey into why men are the way they are--and why women are the way they are. If you're a student of men and women, prepare to become a scholar; if you are involved in social services or social policy, prepare to become a pioneer."

(Warren Farrell, PhD, author, The Myth of Male Power and Why Men Are the Way They Are)

"No one book can be expected to reverse this tsunami of idiocy, but Steve Moxon's The Woman Racket may keep some heads above water. Despite a contentious title, it plays fair and will utterly persuade the objective reader ... Racket is full of surprises ... The book breathes energy, intelligence, and what Bertrand Russell called a robust sense of reality."

(Michael Levin The Quarterly Review)
