The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century

Jack Myers. Inkshares (Ingram, dist.), $25 (344p) ISBN 978-1941758656
Myers (Hooked Up) examines culture, sex, politics, business, and gender in this provocative, well-researched book. He believes "we are in the midst of the greatest societal transformation in the history of humanity: the transformation from male to female dominance." The book traces much current cultural strife to the efforts of men to maintain power in the face of women's advancement. One solution to this impasse? Men need to accept roles that have previously been considered feminine. It will take another generation or two for this shift to be realized, but when it does, Myers writes, both men and women will be the better for it. He predicts that "men won't be the dominant sex in the future, but they won't be subservient either." Myers also reinterprets some familiar statistics, such as the small percentage of female top executives and politicians, in a newly positive light, as showing a trend towards the inevitable female assumption of power. His views will stimulate controversy and conversation. (Mar.)
