Manhood in America

A Cultural History

Third Edition

Michael Kimmel

For more than three decades, the women's movement and its scholars have exhaustively studied women's complex history, roles, and struggles. In Manhood in America, Third Edition, author Michael Kimmel argues that it is time for men to rediscover their own evolution. Drawing on a myriad of sources,he demonstrates that American men have been eternally frustrated by their efforts to keep up with constantly changing standards. Kimmel contends that men must follow the lead of the women's movement; it is only by mining their past for its best qualities and worst excesses that men will free themselves from the constraints of the masculine ideal.

New to this Edition:

  • The most up-to-date research and writing in the field, including coverage of current events such as the 2008 election of Barack Obama
  • Greater incorporation of ethnically diverse masculinity ideals
  • Increased coverage of masculinity and gay culture
