Misogynies by Joan Smith
This book suggests the connections that exist between unlikely people and events to reveal the hidden passion which distorts human relations - woman-hating. Drawing on material from films, novels, trial reports and the royal family, the author searches for misogyny, the secret weapon of the sex war. Joan Smith looks at such connections as "what judges have in common with the Yorkshire Ripper?", "American air force pilots and a group of Nazi thugs?", "Plato and a fascist author from Japan?" And "why Marilyn Monroe, Mrs Thatcher and Samantha Fox are bad news for women?" The author has also written "Clouds of Deceit", "A Masculine Ending" and "Why Aren't They Screaming?".
