“You have to…play by the rules so you can get to the top and change things.” -- Sheryl Sandberg A landmark portrait of women, men, and power in a transformed world Men have been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. But Hanna Rosin was the first to notice that this long-held truth is, astonishingly, no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, by almost every measure, women are no longer gaining on men: They have pulled decisively ahead. And “the end of men”—the title of Rosin’s Atlantic cover story on the subject—has entered the lexicon as dramatically as Betty Friedan’s “feminine mystique,” Simone de Beauvoir’s “second sex,” Susan Faludi’s “backlash,” and Naomi Wolf’s “beauty myth” once did. In this landmark book, Rosin reveals how this new state of affairs is radically shifting the power dynamics between men and women at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up—even kill—has turned the big picture upside down. And in The End of Men she helps us see how, regardless of gender, we can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.

John SteinbeckFareler ve İnsanlar Salinas Nehri, Soledad'ın birkaç mil güneyinde, tepe yamacının yakınından geçer ve rengi yeşile döner. Suyu ılıktır, çünkü; bu dar yerdeki gölcüğü oluşturmadan önce, güneş ışığında pırıl pırıl parlayarak san kumların üzerinden akıp gelmiştir buraya. Nehrin bir yanında altın renkli tepeler, güçlü kayalık Gabilan Dağlarına doğru kıvrıla kıvrıla tırmanır. Diğer yanında ise, baharda yeşeren ve alt yaprak diplerinde, kışın su taşkınlarının bıraktığı kalıntıları taşıyan salkımsöğütlerle beyaz alacalı dalları nehre doğru kavisle inen çınar ağaçlan sıralanır. Ağaçların bulunduğu kumlu kıyıda yapraklar serilip yatmaktadır. Bu yapraklar öylesine gevrektir ki, aralarında bir kertenkele dolaşmaya kalksa kayak yapıyor sanar kendini. Akşamları tavşanlar fundalıktan çıkıp kumda otururlar. Islak kumda geceleri dolaşan rakunların, çiftlik köpeklerinin geniş pençelerinin ve karanlıkta su içmeye gelen geyiklerin çatallı tırnak izleri görülür. Salkımsöğütlerin ve çınar ağaçlarının arasında bir patika uzanır. Çevredeki çiftliklerden derin suda yüzmeye gelen çocuklarla gün boyu ana yolu tepip yorgun düşmüş ve geceleyin nehir kıyısında dinlenmek isteyenlerin üzerinden geçe geçe sertleştirdikleri toprak bir yoldur bu. Dev bir çınarın yere yakın ve yatay uzanan bir dalının önünde, birçok kez yakılmış ateşlerden kalıp birikmiş bir kül yığını vardır. Ağacın dalı insanların üzerine oturması yüzünden aşınmış, sanki cilalı gibi olmuştur. Sıcak bir günün akşamında yaprakların arasında hafif bir rüzgâr esmeye başlamıştı. Karanlık, tepelerin yukarılarına doğru tırmanıyordu. Nehir kıyısındaki kumsalda tavşanlar, taştan gri heykelcikler gibi kımıldamadan oturuyorlardı. Bu sırada karayolundan doğru gevrek çınar yapraklan üzerinde yürüyenlerin ayak sesleri duyulmaya başladı. Tavşanlar sessiz bir telaşla kaçıştılar; uzun bacaklı bir balıkçıl tembelce havalanıp, kanat çırparak dere boyunca oradan uzaklaştı. Bir anda ortada hiçbir yaşam belirtisi kalmamıştı; derken yoldan yeşil suyun bulunduğu açıklığa doğru iki adam çıkageldi. Patikada biri önde, diğeri onun arkasında yürüyordu; açıklığa çıkınca da bunu sürdürdüler; biri önde diğeri arkada. Her ikisi de mavi koton pantolon ve aynı kumaştan parlak pirinç düğmeli ceket giymişti. İkisinin başında da şekilsiz siyah birer şapka vardı ve omuzlarında sıkı sıkıya sarılmış birer battaniye taşıyorlardı. Öndeki ufak tefek, canlı, yanık yüzlü, tedirgin bakışlı bir adamdı; sert anlatımlı hatları vardı. Elleri küçük ve kuvvetli, kolları ince uzun, burnu zayıf ve kemikliydi. Arkasından gelen ise onun tam karşıtıydı; iriyarı, şekilsiz yüzlüydü, uçuk renkli büyük gözleri, geniş düşük omuzları vardı. Ayının yaptığı gibi ayaklarını biraz sürterek hantal bir şekilde yürüyordu. Kolları sallanmıyor, iki omzundan sarkıyordu.

The novel that inspired the acclaimed Rebecca Miller film Maggie's Plan, starring Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke, and Greta Gerwig. Isabel, Anna, Beth, and Maggie are women who aren’t afraid to take it all. Whether spearheading a pregnancy lingerie company, conspiring to return a husband to his ex-wife, lusting after an old lover while in a satisfying marriage, or trying to balance motherhood and work—they are sexy, determined, and not looking for a simple happily ever after. Through punchy, hilarious, and insightful storytelling, The End of Men shatters the confines of society, and more importantly, those we impose upon ourselves. “With humor, bravery, and panache, Karen Rinaldi puts her finger straight on the tender conundrum of the female experience, where work, love, and motherhood intersect.” — Rebecca Miller, director of Maggie’s Plan "Karen Rinaldi's The End of Men is in every way marvelous. A sharply drawn story—or more accurately, stories—that gets everything right. Warm hearted but painfully close to the bone. " —Anthony Bourdain "In 1995, I wrote a short story, 'Baster,' inspired by some goings-on in my friend Karen Rinaldi's life. In 2003, that story, significantly altered, became the Jennifer Aniston-movie ‘The Switch.’ In 2016, another film, 'Maggie's Plan,' directed by Rebecca Miller, appeared, this time based partly on Rinaldi's unfinished novel about said events. And, now, Rinaldi has finished that novel, creating yet another version, her own version. I knew it was a good idea the first time I heard it, but I had no inkling it would prove quite so fruitful. Given the subject matter, however, how could it be otherwise? Certainly, this is a story that keeps on giving." —Jeffrey Eugenides

Published sermons present a special problem, writes John Austin Baker in his introduction to The End of Man. "Sermons no one would think of printing have saved souls; sermons much admired by posterity may have achieved nothing . . .. What is rare indeed is that the text of a genuine sermon as actually delivered should satisfy the criteria of the literary form as well. To the tiny company of such preachers of genius Austin Farrer belongs." The sermons collected in this volume demonstrate Farrer's rare abilities as a writer and preacher. Originally delivered to members of the academic community at Keble College, Oxford, they speak intelligently on all phases of Christianity. Some of the fine points of doctrine are discussed, but so are the very practical aspects of everyday life-matters such as relationships with parents, the importance of a disciplined prayer life, the proper use of money, and how to deal with intellectual challenges to the faith.

Masculinity? This book attempts to answer this one-word question by revisiting key philosophical concepts in the construction of masculinity, not in order to re-write or debunk them again, but in order to provide a radically new departure to what masculinity means today. This new departure focuses on an understanding of sexuality and gender that is neither structured in oppositional terms (masculine-feminine, male-female, man-woman) nor in performative terms (for which the opposition remains always secretly in play), but in a perpendicular relation akin to that which brings space and time together. In doing so, this book doesn't aim to establish yet another theory within the field of masculism or men's studies, but to put forward a personal account of how a revised understanding of the relationship between space, time, and gender can thoroughly alter concepts of masculinity.

"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.

This is a work of rare prophetic brilliance by Josef Pieper, one of this century's most profound and lucid expositors of the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. This book was written to throw light on an ancient question that has vexed and tormented many. What is the nature of "The End" toward which, even now, the world and men are moving? No writer of our time is better equipped to answer that question than Pieper. He provides the most rigorous and sustained philosophical analysis, anchored to "the primeval rock of theological pronouncement," in order precisely to understand the finalities of time and history.

“A sparkling, thought-provoking account of sexual differences. Whether you’re a man or a woman, you’ll find his conclusions gripping.”—Jared Diamond There is a human genetic fluke that is surprisingly common, due to a change in a key pair of chromosomes. In the normal condition the two look the same, but in this disorder one is malformed and shrunken beyond recognition. The result is a shortened life span, higher mortality at all ages, an inability to reproduce, premature hair loss, and brain defects variously resulting in attention deficit, hyperactivity, conduct disorder, hypersexuality, and an enormous excess of both outward and self-directed aggression. It is called maleness. Melvin Konner traces the arc of evolution to explain the relationships between women and men. With patience and wit he explores the knotty question of whether men are necessary in the biological destiny of the human race. He draws on multiple, colorful examples from the natural world—such as the mating habits of the octopus, black widow, angler fish, and jacana—and argues that maleness in humans is hardly necessary to the survival of the species. In characteristically humorous and engaging prose, Konner sheds light on our biologically different identities, while noting the poignant exceptions that challenge the male/female divide. We meet hunter-gatherers such as those in Botswana, whose culture gave women a prominent place, invented the working mother, and respected women’s voices around the fire. Recent human history has upset this balance, as a dense world of war fostered extreme male dominance. But our species has been recovering over the past two centuries, and an unstoppable move toward equality is afoot. It will not be the end of men, but it will be the end of male supremacy and a better, wiser world for women and men alike.

The introduction of the Human Rights Act has led to an explosion in books on human rights, yet no sustained examination of their history and philosophy exists in the burgeoning literature. At the same time, while human rights have triumphed on the world stage as the ideology of postmodernity, our age has witnessed more violations of human rights than any previous, less enlightened one. This book fills the historical and theoretical gap and explores the powerful promises and disturbing paradoxes of human rights. Divided in two parts and fourteen chapters, the book offers first an alternative history of natural law, in which natural rights represent the eternal human struggle to resist domination and oppression and to fight for a society in which people are no longer degraded or despised. At the time of their birth, in the 18th century, and again in the popular uprisings of the last decade, human rights became the dominant critique of the conservatism of law. But the radical energy, symbolic value and apparently endless expansive potential of rights has led to their adoption both by governments wishing to justify their policies on moral grounds and by individuals fighting for the public recognition of private desires and has undermined their ends. Part Two examines the philosophical logic of rights. Rights, the most liberal of institutions, has been largely misunderstood by established political philosophy and jurisprudence as a result of their cognitive limitations and ethically impoverished views of the individual subject and of the social bond. The liberal approaches of Hobbes, Locke and Kant are juxtaposed to the classical critiques of the concept of human rights by Burke, Hegel and Marx. The philosophies of Heidegger, Strauss, Arendt and Sartre are used to deconstruct the concept of the (legal) subject. Semiotics and psychoanalysis help explore the catastrophic consequences of both universalists and cultural relativists when they become convinced about their correctness. Finally, through a consideration of the ethics of otherness, and with reference to recent human rights violations, it is argued that the end of human rights is to judge law and politics from a position of moral transcendence. This is a comprehensive historical and theoretical examination of the discourse and practice of human rights. Using examples from recent moral foreign policies in Iraq, Rwanda and Kosovo, Douzinas radically argues that the defensive and emancipatory role of human rights will come to an end if we do not re-invent their utopian ideal.

The purpose of this book is to explain both the causes for the social and cultural breakdown(s) in today's world, as well as the solutions to our societal regression. The causes come from multiple fronts and did not develop in a matter of days, weeks, months, years, decades, or even generations. The degenerative process that has led humanity to the suicidal path it is currently embarked upon has taken several centuries of progressive corruption to reach this point. However, there is a way to reverse course and heal our society again; returning it to its former strength and health. The way in which a true peace can be realized in this world will be explained. It must be admitted that what it takes to achieve a more universal peace is difficult and burdensome on people for many and various reasons. However, when the reader looks at the state of the world today, it is hopeful that they will choose the difficult and burdensome road required in order to maintain a peaceful civilization rather than the bloody chaos and anarchy transpiring in today's world.

Set more than four thousand years in the future, The End of This Day's Business depicts a truly utopian way of life, a global society in which distinct national cultures are preserved but coexist without competitive nationalism, violence, or war. Women, characterised as the reasonable sex in this society, care for the earth and all it's creatures. Only one price must be paid for this harmony. It is the subjection of men, who, stripped of their history and deprived of any knowledge of women's sacred rights, complacently accept their 'natural' inferiority. The plot turns on the desire of one woman, Grania, an artist and leader, to teacher her son what is forbidden for men to know. Risking both their lives, she tells the story of when men dominated, especially of the twentieth-century rise of fascism, and the subsequent world transformation as life-loving women took over from death-loving men.
