• Mauvais à l'école, inadapté, déprimé, vieillissant : « Carton man » a perdu tous ses repères. Il est dépassé par « Plastic woman », plus riche, plus ambitieuse, plus polyvalente, plus diplômée aussi. La fin de la domination masculine a sonné !
    Partout dans le monde et pour la première fois de notre histoire, nous assistons à un incroyable basculement social et culturel. Les signes sont tangibles : plus de femmes saoudiennes doctorantes, plus de Chinoises au volant de Ferrari rouges, plus d'Indiennes femmes d'affaire, une Islandaise et une Sud-Coréenne à la tête de leur gouvernement. Dans le monde occidental, l'appétit et les pratiques sexuelles des femmes feraient pâlir les pires machos. À quoi bon garder un homme à la maison ?
    Spectaculaire, drôle et parfois effrayant, ce livre prend acte d'un renversement de tendance profond, visible et inéluctable. Il nous ouvre les yeux, nous projette dans l'avenir, bouscule les idées reçues.

  • Anglais God's Harvard

    Hanna Rosin

    Since 2000, America's most ambitious young evangelicals have been making their way to Patrick Henry College, a small Christian school just outside the nation's capital. Most of them are homeschoolers whose idealism and discipline put the average American teenager to shame. And God's Harvard grooms these students to be the elite of tomorrow, dispatching them to the front lines of politics, entertainment, and science, to wage the battle to take back a godless nation. Hanna Rosin spent a year and a half embedded at the college, following the students from the campus to the White House, Congress, conservative think tanks, Hollywood, and other centers of influence. Her account captures this nerve center of the evangelical movement at a moment of maximum influence and also of crisis, as it struggles to avoid the temptations of modern life and still remake the world in its own image.

  • 'Men are so last century. They seem to have stopped evolving. The Mad Men world is disappearing and the guys are struggling to figure out the altered parameters of manliness.' Maureen Dowd 'Do women get anything from men being obsolete? Do we win by triumphing in work, education, the economy, politics and business, while retaining homemaking and child rearing? If that happened then we will be doing everything! Are men obsolete? No! I won't let you be you f*****s!' Caitlin Moran Are Men Obsolete is an essential and entertaining read for anyone interested in what happens next in the great gender discussion. Maureen Dowd, Caitlin Moran, Camille Paglia and Hanna Roisin debate whether modern man is past his sell-by-date, and, if so, what does that mean for women?
