Transforming Masculinities by Victor J. Seidler

Book Description

Critically exploring the ways in which men and masculinities are commonly theorized, this multidisciplinary text opens up a discussion around such relationships, and shows that, as with feminisms, there is a diversity of theoretical traditions. It draws on a variety of examples, and explores new directions in the complexities of diverse male identities and emotional lives across different histories, cultures and traditions. This book: * considers the experiences of different generations * explores connections between masculinity and drugs * investigates men and masculinities in a post-9/11 world * considers new ways of thinking about male violence * recognizes the importance of culture and provides spaces to explore different class, 'race' and ethnic masculinities. Written in a practical, versatile manner by an established author in this field, it points to new directions in thinking, and makes essential reading for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in the fields of sociology, gender studies, politics, philosophy and psychology.

Young Men and Masculinities by Victor J. Seidler Young Men and Masculinities, Paperback (July 2006)

Victor J. Seidler, one of the leading contributors to the growing debate about masculinities, turns his attention to the lives of young men and their understandings of themselves as gendered beings.

Transforming Masculinities by Victor J. Seidler Transforming Masculinities, Hardback (October 2005)

Critically exploring the theories of men and masculinities, this multidisciplinary text highlights diversity, and points to new directions.

Man Enough by Victor J. Seidler Man Enough, Paperback (September 1997)

This reply to Robert Bly's work "Iron John", offers a critical discussion of contemporary ideas of masculinity. The text moves away from the rationalist paradigm of masculinity, and demonstrates that a focus on men's somatic and emotional lives is a means of "embodying" knowledge.

Unreasonable Men by Victor J. Seidler Unreasonable Men, Paperback (December 1993)

Seidler argues that the identification of masculinity with reason has played a central role in Western social theory and philosophy. Reason is defined in opposition to nature, and mind set against body, as men have learnt to take their reason for granted.
