But Hanna Rosin was the first tonotice that this long-held truth is, astonishingly, nolonger true. At this unprecedented moment, by almost every measure, women are no longer gainingon men: They have pulled decisively ahead. And the end of men the title of Rosin s "Atlantic "cover story on the subject has entered the lexicon as dramatically as Betty Friedan s feminine mystique, Simone de Beauvoir s second sex, Susan Faludi s backlash, and Naomi Wolf s beauty myth oncedid. In this landmark book, Rosin reveals how thisnew state of affairs is radically shifting the powerdynamics between men and women at every level ofsociety, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-rangingcuriosity and insight unhampered by assumptionsor ideology, Rosin shows how the radically differentways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up even kill has turned the big picture upsidedown.

Review quote

A "Washington Post" Notable Nonfiction Book of 2012 "Rosin is a gifted storyteller with a talent for ferreting out volumes of illustrative data, and she paints a compelling picture of the ways women are ascendant." "Time " "Afascinating new book." David Brooks, "The New York Times " "Pinpoints the precise trajectory and velocity of the culture... Rosin s book, anchored by data and aromatized by anecdotes, concludes that women are gaining the upper hand." "The Washington Post " "A persuasive, research-grounded argument... The most interesting sections in "The End of Men "show that in the portions of the country where, through culture and money, something like equality between the sexes is being achieved, the differences between them collapse." "Esquire " "Heralds the ways current economic and societal power shifts are bringing 'the age of testosterone' to a close and the consequences." "Vanity Fair" "Refreshing... Rosin's book may be the most insightful and readable cultural analysis of the year, bringing together findings from different fields to show that economic shifts and cultural pressures mean that in many ways, men are being left behind... "The End of Men" is buttressed by numbers, but it's a fascinating read because it transcends them... Rosin's genius was to connect these dots in ways no one else has for an unexpected portrait of our moment. "The End of Men "is not really about a crisis for men; it's a crisis of American opportunity." "The Los Angeles Times " "Especially timely... Rosin has her finger squarely on the pulse of contemporary culture... fresh and compelling." "USA Today" "[Rosin's] thorough research and engaging writing style form a solid foundation for a thoughtful dialogue that has only just begun... It's not the final word on gender roles in the 21st century, but it's a notable starting point for a fascinating conversation." "The Minneapolis Star-Tribune" "Ambitious and surprising... ["The End of Men "is] solidly researched and should interest readers who care about feminist history and how gender issues play out in the culture... A nuanced, sensitively reported account of how cultural and economic forces are challenging traditional gender norms and behavior." "The Boston Globe " "Backed by workforce stats, [Rosin's] stories forge a convincing case that modern female aptitudes give women the advantage." "Mother Jones " "Makes us see the larger picture... this provocative book is not so much about the end of men but the end of male supremacy... The great strength of Ms. Rosin's argument is that she shows how these changes in sex, love, ambition and work have little or nothing to do with hard-wired brain differences or supposed evolutionary destiny. They occur as a result of economic patterns, the unavailability of marriageable men, and a global transformation in the nature of work." "The Wall Street Journal " "In this bold and inspired dispatch, Rosin upends the common platitudes of contemporary sexual politics with a deeply reported meditation from the unexpected frontiers of our rapidly changing culture." Katie Roiphe, author of "The Morning After "and "Uncommon Arrangements" ""The End of Men "describes a new paradigm that can, finally, take us beyond winners and losers in an endless gender war. What a relief! Ultimately, Rosin's vision is both hope-filled and creative, allowing both sexes to become far more authentic: as workers, partners, parents... and people. Peggy Orenstein, author of "Cinderella Ate My Daughter "and "Schoolgirls" PRAISE FOR HANNA ROSIN'S "GOD HARVARD" ""God's Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America," is a rare accomplishment for many reasons - perhaps most of all because Rosin is a journalist who not only reports but also observes deeply." "San Francisco Chronicle" "A superb work of extended reportage." "Chicago Sun-Times" "Nuanced and highly readable." "The Washington Post" [Rosin] covers an impressive amount of ground about women A great starting point for readers interested in exploring the intersecting issues of gender, family and employment.
