Published books

  • Faludi, Susan (October 1, 1991). Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women. Crown. ISBN 0517576988. 
Backlash argued that the 1980s saw a backlash against feminism, especially due to the spread of negative stereotypes against career-minded women. Faludi asserted that many who argue "a woman's place is in the home, looking after the kids" are hypocrites, since they (or their wives) are exactly like the women they are criticizing. This work won her the National Book Critics Circle Award for general nonfiction in 1991.
  • Faludi, Susan (October 1, 2000). Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man. Harper Perennial. ISBN 0380720450. 
In Stiffed Faludi analyzes the American man. She argues that while many of those in power are men, most men have little power. American men have been brought up to be strong, support their families and work hard. But many men who followed this now find themselves underpaid or unemployed, disillusioned and abandoned by their wives. Changes in American society have affected both men and women, Faludi concludes, and it is wrong to blame individual men for class differences, or for plain differences in individual luck and ability, that they did not cause and from which men and women suffer alike.
  • Faludi, Susan (October 2, 2007). The Terror Dream: Fear and Fantasy in Post-9/11 America. Metropolitan Books. ISBN 0805086927. 
In The Terror Dream Faludi analyzes the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in light of prior American experience going back to insecurity on the historical American frontier such as in Metacom's Rebellion, identifies political and sociological responses to such experiences that were recapitulated after 9/11, and draws analogies with that past to suggest positive options for future policy.[2][3]
