Description - Cultures of Masculinity by Tim Edwards
Cultures of Masculinity presents a survey of the social, cultural and theoretical issues which surround and inform our understanding of masculinity. Beginning with an analysis of the so called 'crisis' of masculinity - in which men are repeatedly reported to be experiencing employment, health and educational failings - Tim Edwards considers the validity of the concerns and anxieties which surround masculinity in the contemporary world. He covers a range of key topics, including: * the study of masculinity and its relationship to feminism * men and violence * marginalized masculinities: race and sexuality * representation, performance and masculinity: cinema, fashion and men's style magazines * the body and sport. One of the most comprehensive and progressive studies of modern masculinity available, this book will be essential reading for students of gender, culture and sociology.
