Free downloadable material from Swayne O’Pie’s new book

The book’s just been published internationally (11 June) in both paperback and ebook editions (Kindle only). The Kindle edition is downloadable onto PCs and Macs using free-to-download software from Amazon. It’s also downloadable onto some e-readers in addition to the Kindle device.

Some good news. Regular visitors to this blog will be aware that Swayne O’Pie’s book Why Britain Hates Men: Exposing Feminism was published in October 2011, and an international edition made published in late May 2012 with the title Exposing Feminism: The Thirty Years’ War Against Men. The content of the book will be of interest to anyone with a general interest in modern feminism, but the book includes a lot of content specifically related to women in the world of work, including the following 14 chapters:

Women Choose Lower Pay and Lower Status

Women’s Work Ethic and Choice of Options

Women Choose a Healthy Work-Life Balance

Women Choose to Take Career Breaks

Women Choose to Work Fewer Hours: and Fewer Unsocial Hours

Women Choose to Work in Fulfilling Jobs

Women Choose to Avoid Stressful Work

Top Jobs for the Sisters: Can Positive Discrimination be Justified?

The book’s just been published in an ebook edition for the first time, with the title Exposing Feminism. Although available only in a Kindle (MOBI) edition, a number of e-readers other than Kindle can download it. It can also be read on PCs and Macs with free-to-download Kindle reading software from Amazon, which works very well. It’s on all Amazon websites so far as I can see, including the following. Amazon reserves the right to change prices over time. The paperback edition is in A4 format with 458 pages, so the ebook edition is very good value for money.

Ms Marx and Her Brothers

People often ask me why I’m so concerned about militant feminism and its various manifestations, such as ‘improved’ gender diversity in the boardroom. There are many reasons but one is that militant feminism is a cloak behind which socialism lurks and exerts its malign influence. In his book Why Britain Hates Men: Exposing Feminism (on sale in the UK only, the international edition is titled Exposing Feminism: The Thirty Years’ War Against Men) the British campaigner and writer Swayne O’Pie – ‘The Feminists’ Nemesis’ – memorably calls feminism ‘Socialism’s Trojan Horse’. He’s kindly agreed to my suggestion that I put a chapter from his book on this blog. It’s titled, ‘Ms Marx and Her Brothers’. Enjoy:

I recommend the book highly; and at 460 pages in length, it’s terrific value. It’s available to order from www.exposingfeminism.com and in the next week or two it will be made available as an ebook with the title Exposing Feminism.

An international edition of Swayne O’Pie’s book has just been published

I’m a big fan of Swayne O’Pie’s book Why Britain Hates Men: Exposing Feminism, followers of this blog may be particularly interested in the extensive section concerning the genders and the world of work. Until now the book’s been available to order in the UK only, but I’m pleased to announce it’s just been published internationally with the title Exposing Feminism: The Thirty Years’ War Against Men. It differs from the British edition only by virtue of a new Foreword, written by myself, and it’s available to order through the usual retailers, including Amazon.

My books

I’ve written nine books since 2008, the last three have been concerned with the scourge of militant feminism, a movement which has long assaulted individuals and institutions including:

  • men
  • women
  • marriage
  • the family
  • the business sector
  • the legal system
  • academia
  • the media
  • government

… and much else.

My last three books were:

The Glass Ceiling Delusion: the real reasons more women don’t reach senior positions (2011)

At long last, someone has taken on the myth of discrimination against women who aspire to senior positions in business, including the boardrooms of major corporations. The Glass Ceiling Delusion demythologizes each of thirty elements the author has identified of the now generally accepted claim that women are discriminated against in the world of white-collar work. Much has been accomplished recently in disclosing the half-truths about women and domestic violence, for example, but Buchanan illuminates an area that other critics of ideological feminism have not considered. Buchanan’s analysis is based partly on his experience of working as an executive for major British and American multinational corporations for over 30 years until 2010. His book should inspire research on settings of corporate power everywhere. Always witty and sometimes even biting in style, Buchanan’s text is grounded in important texts in psychobiology, sociology, history and politics. It is an impassioned yet not angry argument that deserves the careful attention of  policy-makers and a general readership.

Professor Miles Groth PhD, Editor, New Male Studies: An International Journal

The Glass Ceiling Delusion attacks head-on the militant feminist myth that men and women have the same interests and capabilities. Reviewing a wide range of evidence, he shows that the under-representation of women in senior positions in business has nothing to do with discrimination and ‘glass ceilings’, and that attempts to impose quotas are therefore fundamentally flawed. A polemical book with an important message.

Peter Saunders Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Sussex University

Equality of opportunity is a fine thing but equality of outcome is another matter entirely. There is little doubt that men and women have, on average, different talents and interests that make gender quotas in the workplace unfair and impractical. The Glass Ceiling Delusion is a welcome, well-argued addition to the debate about whether women should be pushed up the social ladder just because they are women, and thus at a presumed disadvantage. This is rather an insult to women and Margaret Thatcher, for one, would not have agreed. Individuals should be treated as individuals, not as members of a particular race, class or gender. Whatever the historic injustices, this is the only way that social structures can evolve naturally.

Glenn Wilson Visiting Professor of Psychology, Gresham College, London.

The Glass Ceiling Delusion is an important and brave book, the best book on social economics and society in general published for decades. It’s irresistibly compelling, cogently argued and superbly put together. It should be in all school and college libraries. It should be compulsory reading for social science, economics and politics students. It should be force-fed to male and female politicians. This is definitely a five-star book.

Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.

David and Goliatha: David Cameron – heir to Harman? (2010)

Mike Buchanan has courageously taken on the radical feminists. For too long this group have dominated the public policy agenda. Pay equality, gender balance in the boardroom, all women shortlists have been given far too much prominence in public life. We needed the other side to be put and in his book Mike Buchanan does just this. His description of the Prime Minister having a ‘female-pattern brain’ is an interesting aspect of David Cameron. Without being insulting it explains some of the current direction of Conservative policy.

The book calls for a fight back against the radical feminists. It deserves to succeed. Women had a long hard justifiable fight to obtain the vote in our democracy (see my book Our Fight for Democracy), but now they have it the radical feminists want special treatment. This is not acceptable, each person’s vote should have an equal value regardless of gender. Manipulating parliamentary candidate short lists to give preference to women is a distortion of democracy and anyone who believes in democracy should oppose it.

John Strafford Chairman of the Campaign for Conservative Democracy

These books, along with my other books, are available to order from the usual sources as well as from www.lpspublishing.co.uk (credit cards and debit cards accepted). If you order through that website you’ll be able to have the book signed, and a dedication of your choice added.

I’m currently working with the British writer Swayne O’Pie – ‘The Feminists’ Nemesis’ – to raise awareness of his book Why Britain Hates Men: Exposing Feminism.
