Unreasonable Men by Victor J. Seidler
Book DescriptionThis much needed book is the first to show how dominant forms of masculinity are implicated in the traditions of social theory that have emerged since the Enlightenment. The author shows how an 'unreasonable' form of reason has emerged from the separation of reason from emotion, mind from body, nature from culture, public from private, matter from spirit - the dualities that have shaped our vision of modernity. The book argues that men need to explore critically their power and experience which has been rendered invisible by the dominant traditions of social theory. Instead of legislating for others they have to learn to speak more personally for themselves.

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, Paperback (October 2005)
Exploring the ways in which men and masculinities are commonly theorized, this text discusses such relationships, and shows that, as with feminisms, there is a diversity of theoretical traditions. It also explores directions in the complexities of male identities and emotional lives, across different histories, cultures, and traditions.
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.
