This men's liberation anthology, the most comprehensive book of its kind ever published, takes a men's rights perspective: while society is sexist toward women, society also has sexist attitudes toward men--as is evidenced by men's second-class status as parents, lack of rights when divorcing, vastly higher suicide rates, etc. If the books by Daniel Amnéus (published by Primrose press, a subsidiary of Viaticum Press International) are politically conservative, this book has a more liberal tone, with a positive attitude toward gay rights, a welcoming attitude toward women's liberation (with criticisms of feminist excesses), and an upbeat tone about men's role as parents.
