	"Stiffed is a brilliant, important book.. Faludi's reportorial and literary skills unfold with breathtaking confidence and beauty... She goes a long way toward eliminating the black and white, good and evil, male and female polarities that have riven the sexes in the past three decades..." –Time
	In 1991, internationally renowned feminist journalist Susan Faludi ignited a revival of the women's movement with her revelatory investigative reportage: Backlash was nothing less than a landmark, uncovering an "undeclared war" against women's equality in the media, advertising, Hollywood, the workplace, and government-a war that is still being fought today.
	Stiffed may be even more essential than Backlash to understanding the cultural riptides that led to Trumpian America. Here, Faludi turns her attention to the so-called "Angry Male" politics plaguing the nation. Through deeply researched, nuanced, and empathetic character studies of distressed industrial workers, laid-off aerospace engineers, combat veterans, football fans, evangelical husbands, suburban and inner-city teenage boys, and Hollywood and porn actors, Stiffed goes beyond the easy explanations of male misbehavior-that it's driven by chromosomes or hormones-to lay bare the powerful social and economic forces that have shattered the postwar compact defining American manhood.  Faludi's vivid storytelling illuminates the historic and traumatic paradigm shift from a "utilitarian" manliness, grounded in civic and communal service, to an "ornamental" masculinity shaped by entertainment, marketing, and performance values. 
	Read in the light of Trumpian politics and the #MeToo movement, Faludi's analysis speaks acutely to our present crisis, and to a foreboding future. Stiffed delivers a searing portrait of modern-day male America, and traces the provenance of a gender war that continues to rage, unabated.
