Are Men Necessary?: When Sexes Collide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Are men afraid of smart, successful women? Why did feminism fizzle? Why are so many of today's women freezing their faces and emotions in an orgy of plasticity? Is "having it all" just a cruel hoax?

In this witty and wide-ranging book, Maureen Dowd looks at the state of the sexual union, raising bold questions and examining everything from economics and politics to pop culture and the "why?" of the Y chromosome. These new writings will delight her devoted readers - and anyone trying to sort out the chaos that occurs when sexes collide.

Synopsis:

"In this witty and wide-ranging book, Maureen Dowd looks at the state of the sexual union, raising bold questions and examining everything from economics and politics to pop culture and the "why?" of the Y chromosome."--"Salon"

Synopsis:

Fresh from her success with the best-selling BUSHWORLD, Maureen Dowd turns her sparkling prose and wise wit to a topic even more incendiary than presidential politics: sexual politics. Four decades after the sexual revolution, nothing has worked out the way it was supposed to. The sexes are circling each other as uneasily and comically as ever, from the bedroom to the boardroom, and now the New York Times columnist digs into the Y and X files, exploring the mysteries and muddles of sexual combat in America.

About the Author

Maureen Dowd has been a New York Times Op-Ed columnist since 1995. Previously she wrote the "On Washington" column for The New York Times Magazine. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1999 for her commentary on the Clinton impeachment.
