Mankinds Historic Quest to End Baldness is a social history of one of humanitys most irksome problems: male pattern baldness.Throughout the centuries, Man (not his real name) has tried everything to hide, treat and repair baldness, as well as a host of nostrums designed to coax hair growth from the scalp (or, at least, money from the wallets of unsuspecting baldies).

Yet we stand on the brink of a truly historic epoch: Two drugs are now federally approved remedies for baldness and more are on the way while surgical techniques continue to improve, and even hairpieces are becoming acceptable again. Will baldness, the stigma it carries, and the profound psychological toll it takes on men soon be things of the past? Will bald men someday be electable? Are these even rhetorical questions?Gersh Kuntzman takes you from the laboratories of Merck, maker of Propecia, to the operating rooms of the nations best hair-transplant surgeons, to the rug men working on the cutting edge of artificial hair design.

Hair! covers baldness like nothing before.
