A Report on the Violent Male

(1992)
A non fiction book by

 
 
In 1962, A.E. van Vogt published a novel entitled 'The Violent Man' concerning the attempt to brainwash an American airman in a Chinese prisoner-of-war camp. The commandant is a 'Right Man'...a man who will never, under any circumstances, admit he is in the wrong; a man who will fly into a blind rage when his self-esteem is challenged. To explain the psychology of such a man, and prepare the ground for the novel, he wrote and privately printed the essay 'A Report on the Violent Male'. Paupers' Press is pleased to make this thought-provoking document widely available.
"It was clear to me that van Vogt is here touching on some important philosophical issues - for example, the whole question of what Sartre calls 'mauvais-foi' - self delusion...I became convinced that the discovery he had made - in identifying the Violent Man-type, and recognising the peculiar nature of his relation with women and with his own family - was of tremendous importance.." Colin Wilson (from his Introduction)
"...a pre-feminist and pre-pop-biology attempt to pin down the problem of the violent male..." Gary Dexter, 'The Spectator'.
