Bad Men

Male Chauvinism!
How it works
Korda
Mass Market Paper:  1979
Hardcover: 1973

This library still had the mass market paper cover still on the shelf as of this post.  I can only imagine that it is in this good a condition because no one has looked at it since the early 80’s.  Yes, it is taped up and the pages are a bit “crunchy”.   Great book and topic for any collection — when I was a teenager.  Is it useful now?  Debatable.  Assuming that this library automated in the mid nineties, why on earth did they stick a bar code on this pathetic little paperback?  The barcode and the processing probably cost more than the book.  I urge you to run to your women’s studies area and weed.  It will also help if you play Helen Reddy’s I am Woman right before so you are in the correct frame of mind.

Busy burning my bra,

Mary

  • I’m getting so used to seeing books about inappropriate touching on this site that when I saw ‘Bad Men’ pop up, I expected to see another title like that. Chauvinism is a bad thing too. I missed the word ‘how’ in the subtitle, and for a minute I thought it said ‘male chauvinism!; it works’. 😀

  • Thanks, Newsweek! I have been looking for a reason to join my son in his tae kwon do studies, and now I have one: male chauvinism!

  • I’m pretty sure this Korda guy a severe case of prostate cancer later in his life. Karma? You be the judge.

  • Mr. Korda seems fond of exclamation points in his titles!

  • “Chauvinist pigs!”

  • Michael Korda was responsible, as editor in chief for Simon & Schuster, for the publication of books by Jacqueline Susann and Harold Robbins. So he knew a thing or two about male chauvinism.

  • I was hoping to see tips on making male chauvinism work.

  • Mr Korda also brought us the novel ‘Queenie’ – later a made-for-TV movies (1987)
