The Manipulated Man, Paperback / softback Book


Esther Vilar's classic polemic about the relationship between the sexes caused a sensation on its first publication.

In her introduction to this revised edition, Vilar maintains that very little has changed.

A man is a human being who works, while a woman chooses to let a man provide for her and her children in return for carefully dispensed praise and sex.

Vilar's perceptive, thought-provoking and often very funny look at the battle between the sexes has earned her severe criticism and even death threats.

But Vilar's intention is not misogynous: she maintains that only if women and men look at their place in society with honesty, will there be any hope for change.
