Reviews
This newly updated edition surveys the range of responses to feminism that men have made and puts political theory at the center of men's awareness of their own masculinity. In clear and insightful language, Professor Clatterbaugh surveys not just conservative, liberal, and radical views of masculinity, but also the alternatives offered by the men's rights movement, spiritual growth advocates, and black and gay rights activists. Each of these is explored both as a theoretical perspective and as a social movement, and each offers distinctive responses to the questions posed. New chapters on the Promise Keepers, Million Man March, and gay rights along with an updated bibliography ensure timeliness, and Clatterbaugh treats all views with fairness as he develops and defends a vision of men and masculinity consistent with feminist ideals and a just society.
