Books By Author Angus McLaren

Reproduction by Design by Angus McLaren Reproduction by Design, Hardback (March 2012)

Drawing on novels, plays, and films of the 1920s and '30s, as well as the work of biologists, psychiatrists, and sexologists, this title brings together the experience and perception of modernity with sexuality, technology, and ecological concerns into a cogent discussion of science's place in reproduction in British and American cultural history.

Impotence by Angus McLaren Impotence, Hardback (May 2007)

A cultural history of impotence that shows us that the failure of men to rise to the occasion has been a recurrent topic since the dawn of human culture. This work also explores the surprising political and social effects of impotence.

Trials of Masculinity by Angus McLaren Trials of Masculinity, Paperback (July 1999)

In this history of manhood and masculinity, the author argues that modern formulations of masculinity, despite any sense of naturalness and constancy, are in fact, idealized cultural products of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
