Item Description...
"Timely when originally published, Men and Marriage is essential now given the the warlike climate of male-female relationships, unfortunately fostered by radical feminism." Rush Limbaugh Men and Marriage is a critical commentary that asks the burning question, How can society survive the pervasive disintegration of the family? A profound crisis faces modern social order as traditional family relationships become almost unrecognizable. George Gilder's Men and Marriage is a revised and expanded edition of his 1973 landmark work, Sexual Suicide . He examines the deterioration of the family, the well-defined sex roles it offered, and how this change has shifted the focus of our society. Poverty, for instance, stems from the destruction of the family when unmarried parents are abandoned by their lovers or older women are divorced because society approves of their husbands' younger girlfriends. Gilder claims that men will only fulfill their paternal obligations when women lead them to do so, and that this civilizing influence, balanced with proper economic support, is the most important part of maintaining a productive, healthy, loving society. He offers a concrete plan for rebuilding the family in America. His solutions challenge readers to return to these roles and reestablish the family values that were once so crucial in staving off the ills that plague our country. Gilder insists that it is time to reexamine what "liberation" has wrought and at what cost. Only a return to traditional family values, he contends, can stem the tide of disaster. George Gilder is the author of Wealth and Poverty, the best-selling critique of Reaganomics, The Spirit of Enterprise, Visible Man, Naked Nomads, and The Party That Lost Its Head . He was a speechwriter for Ronald Reagan and now writes regularly for The Wall Street Journal and National Review about material advances and their effect on society. His most recent books include two other well-known social commentaries, Microcosm and Life After Television.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Equality is Not 'Sameness'  Apr 12, 2008
This book received a lot of flack when it first came out. The demand for equality among men and women was finally being accepted as a proper ideal for a civilized society, and anyone who disagreed was deservedly shouted down. But amidst the great din, it was presumed with terrible shallowness that any thoughtful challenge was traitorous activity (This, unfortunately, is often still the case.) George Gilder was one of the first to point out that 'equality' does not mean 'sameness', that acknowledging the equality of women does not mean that men and women think, feel, or ought to act, in the same ways, or that it is 'bad' to examine the question of whether there might be gender roles that are indeed sensible, virtuous, and possibly even wonderful. As we look back over the years since the feminist movement began, we cannot honestly say that the changes we have made have made everyone happy. It is worth going back and taking a calm, thoughtful, fresh look at the challenges that George Gilder raised in this book.
Weird book  Dec 18, 2007
While I agree with Gilder that a return to marriage and family is nothing but positive for society, I absolutely disagree with returning to traditional gender roles unless that is what each person wants. Live and let live. I have a wonderful egalitarian marriage that serves my family quite well. Both of us work and could each support our family should anything happen to the other which is something that my stay at home sister going through a divorce will never be able to do for herself and her children. If a traditional marriage with traditional roles works for you, great. If an egalitarian one works - good for you too. Men should be offended that Gilder reduces them to violent, drooling troglodyte rapists if they aren't married and in control. I don't know any single guys that fit that bill outside of prison.
Greg Cello  Nov 26, 2007
This book is essential to the becoming of age man (as well as woman) to show him that our society and the individuals in our society thrive of marriage and family values. It is these ideals that are the core basis that America runs on and defines its greatness, why else would we be the most prosperous country in the world.
Both academic and entertaining...  Jul 8, 2006
I agree with a lot of what previous posters have said but would like to add that Mr. Gilder is indeed a gifted writer. The book is replete with "laugh-out-loud" witicism interspersed between salient point after salient point. I loved it.

As an African American who grew up in a working class neighborhood which, over the 20 years since my departure, has deteriorated almost to the point of "ghetto", I can say unequivocally that whatever Gilder points out concerning the general population indeed goes triple for the African American community. If America has drunken the feminist "kool-aid" and relegated husbandhood and fatherhood to the trash heap of obselescence, the black community has taken said "kool-aid" intravenously...and it shows!

Thanks Mr. Gilder for you engaging contribution to sanity.
Review of marriage stats  May 17, 2006
The reviewer before me mentioned some interesting statistics about married versus single men. The writer of the book used his statistics to sugest that for men's success getting married may be more important than college.

I would like to say that correlation does not mean causation. Is it that married men get so much support from women when they are married that they are more likely to succeed? Or could it be that many women only want to marry successful men? My guess is that it is more the latter than the former. Men who are successful are more likely to find women that want to marry them. I have met many women who will blatenlly tell you that they hope to one day mary a rich and successful man. Most men desire to eventually get married. By this reasoning most men that are not married are not married because women thought they were not successful enough, or had to many emotional problems. Did getting married cause success, or did the probability of success cause marriage?
