Read in January, 2002

Faludi is an excellent writer. I've heard her journalism criticized, but can't comment on it myself -- I felt this was well-researched. Faludi tracks American masculinity into the most unlikely places (porn filming sets, Promise Keepers rallies) and comes away with a startling conclusion: All over America, men are feeling bereft and rejected, denied the economic success they were promised, confused by women's increasing demands for power, and lashing out for more power in the face of what they perceive as a world spinning out of their control.
