"Timely when originally published, Men and Marriage is essential now given the the warlike climate ofmale-female relationships, unfortunately fostered by radical feminism."Rush LimbaughMen and Marriage is a critical commentary that asks theburning question, How can society survive the pervasive disintegration of thefamily? A profound crisis faces modern social order as traditional familyrelationships become almost unrecognizable.George Gilder's Men and Marriage is a revised and expandededition of his 1973 landmark work, Sexual Suicide . He examinesthe deterioration of the family, the well-defined sex roles it offered, and howthis change has shifted the focus of our society. Poverty, for instance, stemsfrom the destruction of the family when unmarried parents are abandoned bytheir lovers or older women are divorced because society approves of theirhusbands' younger girlfriends. Gilder claims that men will only fulfill theirpaternal obligations when women lead them to do so, and that this civilizinginfluence, balanced with proper economic support, is the most important part ofmaintaining a productive, healthy, loving society. He offers a concrete planfor rebuilding the family in America. His solutions challenge readers to returnto these roles and reestablish the family values that were once so crucial instaving off the ills that plague our country.Gilder insists that it is time to reexamine what "liberation" haswrought and at what cost. Only a return to traditional family values, hecontends, can stem the tide of disaster.George Gilder is the author of Wealth and Poverty , thebest-selling critique of Reaganomics, The Spirit of Enterprise ,Visible Man , Naked Nomads , and The Party ThatLost Its Head . He was a speechwriter for Ronald Reagan and now writesregularly for The Wall Street Journal and National Review aboutmaterial advances and their effect on society. His most recent books includetwo other well-known social commentaries, Microcosm and Life AfterTelevision.
