"In this set of essays on topics like pornography, rape, sexual harassment, the Citadel, and paternity, Larry May develops a distinct moral vision that rejects traditional definitions of masculinity without requiring that we cease to be men in order to act ethically. Bracing, fresh, and insightful, these essays make it possible for men to be both masculine and moral."-Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America: A Cultural History "Larry May is a careful philosopher who asks interesting and important questions about the interpersonal and social responsibilities of men in a society of continuing injustice to women. He makes precise distinctions and good arguments in answering those questions. A first-rate book."-Iris M. Young, author of Justice and the Politics of Difference"People are too used to books about 'gender' being about women. Larry May's book challenges men to think about why issues like pornography, sexuality, rape, harassment, and all-male institutions are their moral and social problems, too. May's arguments for men's shared responsibility in these matters of intense popular debate are always clear and often provocative. They make discussion hard to resist. This book is an excellent choice for courses in ethics or feminism."-Margaret Urban Walker, Fordham University
