"If, as men are so often told, they are the dominant sex, why do so many of them feel dominated, done in by the world? Anyone who reads a magazine, watches a TV talk show, or listens to a radio call-in program has heard the evidence: America is having a masculinity crisis. Angry White Males have become a voting bloc. Dads are deadbeat. Boys are on the rampage. And with each schoolyard shooting and presidential peccadillo, with each corporate sexual harassment lawsuit and laid-off worker gone berserk, the media offer up the stock pronouncements: Men are out of control, overcontrolling, dangerous, violent, and even, it has been written, obsolete. Their troubles are said to be internal, the result of testosterone poisoning, Y chromosomes, attention deficit disorder, a warlike nature. Furthermore, it's charged, men have only themselves to blame, for aren't they the ones in control of the culture? Or are they? In Stiffed, Susan Faludi, the acclaimed author of Backlash, the convention-smashing manifesto on women's embattled status, turns her impressive powers of reporting and analysis to the problems of men and comes up with a revolutionary diagnosis. Men's problems aren't the product of biology, or of such trumped-up enemies as feminism and affirmative action, but of a modern social tragedy. By listening to men's stories in their own voices, by taking them on their own terms, Faludi uncovers a buried history- the untold story of how America made a glittering set of promises to the men of the baby-boom generation ... and proceeded to break every one of them. The betrayal of the American man has been perpetrated on many fronts, from the boardroom to the football stadium, from the army recruitment center to the suburban living room. Stiffed takes us on a journey through a contemporary masculine landscape littered with broken promises and into the lives of individual men whose accounts reveal the heart of the male dilemma. With an empathetic vision that breaks down the familiar lines of gender battle, Faludi travels deep into the meaning of male anguish. She intimately chronicles the struggles of industrial workers, sports fans, combat veterans, evangelical husbands, media executives, movie stars, porn actors, militiamen, astronauts, and "bad" boys--whose sense that they've lost their skills, jobs, civic roles, wives, teams, and secure futures is only one symptom of a larger and more profound collapse. Faludi pinpoints men's greatest antagonist and discovers that it is not what conventional wisdom would have us believe. What keeps men from revolting against their circumstances? Faludi's explanation for that mystery opens up the possibility that men's coming rebellion could emancipate both sexes from their true and mutual enemy, a cultural force that constrains us all. Stiffed is a major reassessment of what it is to be a man in modern America. The national discussion it will surely provoke could shatter the old paradigm of men versus women and lay the groundwork for a culture that affirms the needs of everyone."--Dust jacket flaps
The terror dream : fear and fantasy in post-9/11 America by Susan Faludi( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this original examination of America's post-9/11 culture, journalist Faludi shines a light on the country's psychological response to the attacks of that terrible day. Turning her observational powers on the media, popular culture, and political life, Faludi unearths a barely acknowledged societal drama shot through with baffling contradictions. Why, she asks, did our culture respond to an assault against American global dominance with a frenzied summons to restore "traditional" manhood, marriage, and maternity? Why did we react as if the hijackers had targeted not a commercial and military edifice but the family home and nursery? The answer, she finds, lies in a historical anomaly unique to the American experience: the nation was forged in traumatizing assaults by nonwhite "barbarians" on town and village. That humiliation lies concealed under a myth of cowboy bluster and feminine frailty, which is reanimated whenever threat and shame looms.--From publisher description

Backlash : La guerre froide contre les femmes by Susan Faludi( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in French and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de l'introduction : "Etre femme en Amérique, à l'approche du XXIe siècle, quelle chance extraordinaire! C'est ce qu'on nous dit en tout cas. Les barrières sont tombées, affirment les politiques. Les femmes "y sont arrivées", jubilent les publicitaires de Madison Avenue. Le combat des femmes pour le droit à l'égalité "est largement gagné" titre le magazine Time. N'hésitez pas, inscrivez-vous dans n'importe quelle université, postulez dans n'importe quel cabinet d'avocats, demandez un crédit dans n'importe quelle banque. Les femmes sont désormais si bien loties, disent les chefs d'entreprise, que la lutte pour l'égalité des chances n'est plus une priorité. Les femmes sont devenues à tel point "égales", constate le législateur, que l'amendement pour l'égalité des droits est devenu inutile. Les femmes ont déjà "tellement", explique l'ex-président Ronald Reagan, que la Maison Blanche n'a plus aucune raison de les nommer à des postes de responsabilité. Même les publicités d'American Express font l'apologie de l'indépendance des femmes, pas de façon totalement désinteressée il est vrai. Les femmes sont enfin considérées comme des citoyens à part entière. Et pourtant ... Derrière cette victoire des Américaines célébrée à grand bruit, derrière cette reconnaissance unanime et sans cesse réaffirmée du droit des femmes à disposer d'elles-mêmes, un autre message se fait jour. Et il dit ceci aux femmes : vous avez enfin conquis la liberté et l'égalité, mais pour votre plus grand malheur."
