Slow Motion: Changing Masculinities, Changing Men

£3.99

Product description

Published in 1990 and written by the author of Is the Future Female?, this work examines men and masculinity: "Throughout the 1980s questions concerning the changing nature of men's lives and experiences have been debated with new passion and concern. From the exploration of sex roles to the study of gender and power, the psychology of men has emerged fraught with strain and crisis. Ironically, the thoughts of those seeking a sexual politics to undermine men's power over women remain consistently gloomy, while the category of masculinity remains deeply obscure. This book approaches the 'problem of men' in a new way by not looking at masculinity, but at specific 'masculinities'. From the complex and contradictory web of differing male identities, a new approach to sexual politics begins to emerge."

Book in fair condition, although the previous owner has inscribed the title page and there are creases and signs of wear from previous readings.
