In the preface of this new book, Dr. Fine states, “In the extensive literature on human and sexual liberation, there is a startling omission--the psychology of man.” In response to this enormous oversight, Dr. Fine has written The Forgotten Man, an important book that clearly demonstrates how many dimensions of the male's psychic structure and psychodynamics have either been neglected and/or misunderstood by many psychoanalytically oriented clinicians. As a result, professionals of all persuasions and non-professionals have “forgotten” about many of the male's dilemmas and stresses.

This frank, controversial, sometimes startling book covers the topics of sexuality, aggression, social roles, and love as they influence the development of the male psyche. Dr. Fine, a world-renowned psychologist comments on man's loves and hates; his sexual desires, practices, and conflicts; his problems with aggression; his anxieties, trials, and tribulations with women; and his difficulties in maturing.

In addition to his brilliant theoretical formulations, Dr. Fine provides us with penetrating analyses of men from all walks of life--politicians, businessmen, psychologists, athletes, and many more. He shows us healthy men, ill men, loving men, hateful men, those who are too uptight and those who are too loose, winners and losers.

Thorough scholarship and detailed research distinguish this landmark volume. Readable, insightful, and desperately needed, The Forgotten Man tells of the rocky roads to manhood and fatherhood, the myths about men promulgated by the women's movement, and the relationship between aggression and sexual performance. The book contains references, chapter notes, and discussions by 10 recognized critics that alone cover 54 pages.
