Format: Hardcover
In this monumental work, George Gilder looks at single men in the America of 1974. He looks at the biology that makes men what they are, looks at the effects of singleness on men, the effects of single men on society, the effects of the sexual revolution on society, and finally at love.

When I saw that this book was written in 1974, I almost dismissed it out of hand as out-of-date and irrelevant. How wrong I was. Though written so long ago, Gilder credibly makes a fascinating argument about the nature of men and the role they play. I found myself quite moved by this book, and provided with a good deal of food for thought. Though you may not agree with what Mr. Gilder has written here, it is very much worth reading. I recommend this book most highly.

From page 121: "And as in Victorian England, when suppression of sex led to an epidemic of perversity-all kinds of lurid flowers in the secret gardens of society, so the denial of male affirmation in modern life leads to pervasive distortions and perversions of healthy masculine aggression-to violence and pornography, to fear and exploitation of women, to the quest for potency through drugs and alcohol, to punch-drunk music, and to fighting at sports events." This could have been written yesterday, and yet Mr. Gilder foresaw it 27 year ago.
