‘The old bargain has been shattered. Women want more than a man who makes a good living: they want a man who provides warmth and commitment.’ Vogue
‘It’s a question most women and many men have struggled with…this book comes up with the best answer so far.’ WomanFrom the Back Cover:
The modern relationship is in crisis. Why? In this pioneering work, Susie Orbach and Luise Eichenbaum pinpoint the deceptively simple question that lies at the root of all its problems and ask – what 'do' women want? Torn between all the demands of today's society, many women feel that they pour love, commitment and understanding into their relationships, but that it is not returned in kind. He seems secure and independent, she feels insecure and needy. The truth is that both men and women are dependent . . .
In crystal-clear prose, Susie Orbach and Lusie Eichenbaum explore the relationships of men and women, explaining how men have learned to 'manage' their dependency needs very differently to women, and why women feel so dependent and hungry for love. They show conclusively why dependency on both sides is the essential core of any successful relationship and how it offers a new blueprint for the future. First published in 1983, this feminist classic has been thoroughly revised for today's audience. Its message is as relevant today as ever.
