Inhaltsangabe

In 2010, pioneering sociologist Catherine Hakim shocked the world with a provocative new theory: In addition to the three recognized personal assets (economic, cultural, and social capital), each individual has a fourth asset - erotic capital - that he or she can, and should, use to advance within society.

In this bold and controversial book, Hakim explores the applications and significance of erotic capital, challenging the disapproval meted out to women and men who use sex appeal to get ahead in life. Social scientists have paid little serious attention to these modes of personal empowerment, despite overwhelming evidence of their importance. In Erotic Capital, Hakim marshals a trove of research to show that rather than degrading those who employ it, erotic capital represents a powerful and potentially equalizing tool - one that we scorn only to our own detriment.

Kritikerstimmen

“This enthusiastic book…succeeds in marrying economics with eros.” ( Publishers Weekly)
“Poets and novelists have always sensed that sexual attractiveness is a kind of capital…. But few sociologists have studied erotic capital outside the marriage market…. Hakim’s concept of erotic capital…offers insight into an age that has, as Philip Larkin once put it, ‘burst into fulfillment’s desolate attic.’” ( Financial Times, London)

Sadly very generalised

Hakim has some good ideas but her theory is too generalised, relies on truism instead of facts and does a lot of explaining by “imagine two girls, on of them is x the other is y”. She presents her idea universal and universally applicable while its probably the opposite. Interesting but I wouldn’t recommend it for education cause it could be misleading and potentially harmful.

new perspective, but biased

ignores the need for and benefit of meaningful "life companion" relationships, annoyingly redundant, favoring job-related gender-inbalance
