GREAT BOOK FOR FEMINIST OR book for any feminist or activist who is inclined to lay the entire burden of the countries problems on the so called Angry White Male The book takes the long view on the "Problem And Traces The Roots Of The Problem Back To "and traces the oots of the problem back to second World War and suggests that men are as shaped by society as they are the authors of it In fact even the most powerful of men have has as much done to them as they have acted out upon She dares to ask the uestion as to who the angry white man is and why exactly is he so angry in the first place A good deal of the book focuses on the baby boomers of the post Word War II era and it examines how society made a lot of promises to them and then proceeded to break every one of them It s an interesting book and a compassionate one too but it s ultimately a failure to me For a book whose title proclaims it to be about a betrayal it spends very little time on the subject of the bet.
