The Chauvinist's Bedside Book

The Chauvinist's Bedside Book

by Barry Blitt (Illustrator), David Olive (Author)


This is a chronicle of the one-sided war of words between the sexes - from Aristotle to Zsa Zsa Gabor. The book is a collection of the most stupid, offensive and arrogant things men, and sometimes women, have said about women. Illustrated throughout by the artists Barry Blitt, the book includes chapters on politics, sports, the sciences, the arts and entertainment, with quotes ranging from the ridiculous (Friedrich Nietzsche's assertion that "when a woman becomes a scholar there is usually something wrong with her genitals") to the sublimely ridiculous (sensationalist academic Camille Paglia's view that "if civilization had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts"). By the co-author of "White Knights and Poison Pills".
