Why is there so much talk of a "crisis" of masculinity? How have ideas of manhood been transformed by feminism? Does feminism hold the key to the development of more egalitarian forms of masculinity?

Does feminism hold the key to the development of more egalitarian forms of masculinity? Masculinity Studies and Feminist Theory addresses central questions about the analysis and construction of masculinity in contemporary society. The volume examines the ways male privilege and power are constituted and represented and explores the effect of such constructions on both men and women. With subjects ranging from Robert Bly�s Iron John to Tom Hank�s "niceness," this collection overturns old paradigms about identity, victimization, and dominant and alternative forms of masculinity to advance new dialogues between masculinity studies and feminist theory. Looking particularly at literature, film, and classroom practices, Masculinity Studies and Feminist Theory links the analysis of masculinities with feminism�s ethical and political agenda for the future. Its authors share a conviction that such a link not only reveals the persistence, now more subtle and varied, of male entitlement but also promises to create an enriched and reinvigorated feminism for a new century.

    this is one of my favorite gender anthologies. the most useful essays for me are the calvin thomas (on the feminist potentiality of the male anus via abjectifying writing practices); the judith gardiner (on the importance of age and developmental categories to understanding gender); and the judith/jack halberstam (on heterosexual conversion films and the threat of female masculinity).

    Understanding of many of the texts in this book presupposes a reading of many other works on feminist theory. In other cases, the essays jump around, trying to combine disparate ideas under one heading to various degrees of success. Not great for someone who has only just entered this field of study. It's probably better for someone who already has a firm footing in the field. Understanding of many of the texts in this book presupposes a reading of many other works on feminist theory.
