Description

In this revised edition of her classic text, Segal's rigorously critical overview of theories of masculinity reflects upon continuities and change in hegemonic notions of masculinity, while focusing critically upon the place of competing male identities, exemplified in black, ethnic, gay and anti-sexist male cultural styles and practices. The stark contrasts in the power and privileges accruing to different groups of men have produced an ongoing sense of failure and confusion in some boys and men, leading many to speak of 'masculinity in crisis'.
