    "Kimmel has made a career out of being what you might call a man-translator."-The Atlantic
    The white American male voter is alive and well--and angry as hell.
    Sociologist Michael Kimmel, one of the leading writers on men and masculinity, has spent hundreds of hours in the company of America's angry white men--from white supremacists to men's rights activists to young students--in pursuit of a comprehensive diagnosis of their fears, anxieties, and rage. Kimmel locates this increase in anger in the seismic economic, social, and political shifts that have transformed the American landscape: Downward mobility, increased racial and gender equality, and tenaciously clinging to an anachronistic ideology of masculinity has left many men feeling betrayed and bewildered. Raised to expect unparalleled social and economic privilege, white men are suffering today from what Kimmel calls "aggrieved entitlement": a sense that those benefits that white men believed were their due have been snatched away from them.
    The election of Donald Trump proved that angry white men can still change the course of history. Here, Kimmel argues that we must consider the rage of this "forgotten" group and create solutions that address the concerns of all Americans.

  • Avez-vous attrapé le virus du féminisme ? Attention, c'est une maladie TRÈS contagieuse !
    " Des publicités sexistes à la contraception, des violences conjugales au harcèlement, plus de soixante-dix questions féministes sont abordées dans le Guide du féminisme pour les hommes - des explications pertinentes, inclusives, drôles et directes. Un livre qui démontre comment et pourquoi le féminisme peut aider les hommes à mener une vie plus riche, plus pleine et plus heureuse. "
    En une seule génération, les idées préconçues sur les femmes ont été balayées. Mais qu'est-ce que cela a à voir avec les hommes ? Les auteurs pensent que même s'il est crucial de donner le plus possible la parole aux femmes, il est aussi important d'éduquer les hommes sur le féminisme pour qu'ils comprennent à quel point ces changements sont essentiels pour eux.
    Ce guide est là pour nous interroger, nous secouer, nous surprendre... Et nous rappeler que le féminisme nous concerne tous !

  • In just one generation, age-old ideas about women have been swept aside . . . but what does that have to do with men? Authors Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel, two of the world's leading male advocates of gender equality, believe it has everything to do with them and that it's crucial to educate men about feminism in order for them to fully understand just how important and positive these changes have been for them. Kaufman and Kimmel address these issues in The Guy's Guide to Feminism. Hip and accessible, it contains nearly a hundred entries from “Autonomy" to “Zero" written in varying tones (humorous, satirical, irreverent, thoughtful, and serious) and in many forms (“top ten" lists, comics, interviews, mini-stories, and more). Each topic celebrates the ongoing gains that are improving the lives of women and girls and what that really means for men. Informal and fun yet substantive and intelligent, The Guy's Guide to Feminism illustrates how understanding and supporting feminism can help men live richer, fuller, and happier lives.
