The pathology of patriarchy, the idea that one group of people should control another?even own them, own even life itself?is at the core of today?s crises.
The End of Patriarchy asks one key question: What do we need to create and maintain stable, decent human communities that can remain in a sustainable relationship with the larger living world?
Robert Jensen?s answer is feminism and a critique of patriarchy.
He calls for a radical feminist challenge to institutionalized male dominance; an uncompromising rejection of men?s assertion of a right to control women?s sexuality and reproduction; and a demand for an end to the violence and coercion that are at the heart of all systems of domination and subordination.
The End of Patriarchy makes a powerful argument that a socially just society requires no less than a radical feminist overhaul of the dominant patriarchal structures.

Reviews of The End of Patriarchy:
Patriarchy is the water that we swim in, and it is poisonous and rank. Unless we see that, how can we ever escape into fresh clean air? In this lucid, balanced and immaculately argued book, Robert Jensen builds his case inexorably towards answering the biggest questions of our lives. Can we re-discover an equal society for humans? Can we live on this earth? We did once, and we can again. This is a book of hope.
