More Description from Internet Sources--

Why does masculinity find itself in crisis nowadays? This book traces some causes of this crisis, the developing interest in masculinity, and the creation of men's studies as an academic subject. Issues discussed include the effects on men of patriarchal ideologies, phallocentrism, male sexuality (both heterosexual and homosexual), and marginal identities such as the cross-dresser. Different strands of masculine discourse are identified and examined in a variety of texts, ranging from the early decades of the 20th century to the present. Opera, film and current news stories provide examples for exploring the ways in which we construct masculinity.
