Long Description
In Face to Face noted commentators on the American scene explore ways of coming to terms with father's authority so that individuals may assert autonomy while preserving and enhancing a sense of community. Fears of all-embracing mother must be confronted so that women's authentic values can be released into the larger world. The book invites women and men alike to confront the obstacles of inequitable social structures, the elitist myths that sustain them, and the primordial fears that lie at their base. Outstanding contributors--Christopher Lasch, Dorothy Dinnerstein, Jessie Bernard, Marjorie Bell Chambers, Jean Baker Miller, and others--address the central issues: fathers, mothers, and the future of freedom; masters and monsters--mythical, religious and psychoanalytic perspectives; men and women as workers face to face; positive confrontation in the public world; and implications for the future.
