summary
This ground-breaking collection of articles exploring the meanings of masculinity: at work, at home, in politics and in love. Looking at fashion, images of black men, heterosexuality, feminism, the new man and families, it examines the uncertainties about what it means to be male today. The essays in this volume refer to touchstones of popular culture – film, television and fiction – in order to unpack myths about contemporary masculinity and men's power.
