Product Details


“Daemon Fairless’s Mad Blood Stirring is a brave tour not just of the inner lives of some violent and terrifying men, but of masculinity’s darkest corners. It is as alarming to read as it is compelling.” —Ian Brown
“Why do men fight? Why do men rape? Why do men kill? In Mad Blood Stirring, Daemon Fairless dives into the lives of fighters, rapists and killers, as well as digs into the science, to let us ‘in’ to the pandemic of male violence and the gendered nature of violence. He spares no one, least of all himself; his writing is generous, feminist and at times poetic. I wrote many exclamation marks and notes in the margins, including ‘Thank you.’” —Jane Doe, activist and author of The Story of Jane Doe: A Book About Rape
Mad Blood Stirring is a courageous and deeply insightful exploration of the male appetite for violence. By turns harrowing, dismaying and fascinating, this book stands alone in the humility and intelligence with which it examines this most difficult of subjects.” —Kevin Patterson, author of News from the Red Desert
“Daemon Fairless has written an urgent, compelling account of what makes many men tick. Anyone who cares about men—a son, brother, father or romantic partner—should read this book.” —Susan Pinker, psychologist, author of The Sexual Paradox
