Revealing Male Bodies is the first scholarly collection to directly confront male lived experience. There has been an explosion of work in men's studies, masculinity issues, and male sexuality, in addition to a growing literature exploring female embodiment. Missing from the current literature, however, is a sustained analysis of the phenomenology of male-gendered bodies. Revealing Male Bodies addresses this omission by examining how male bodies are physically and experientially constituted by the economic, theoretical, and social practices in which men are immersed.

Contributors include Susan Bordo, William Cowling, Terry Goldie, Maurice Hamington, Don Ihde, Greg Johnson, Björn Krondorfer, Alphonso Lingis, Patrick McGann, Paul McIlvenny, Terrance MacMullan, Jim Perkinson, Steven P. Schacht, Richard Schmitt, Nancy Tuana, Craig L. Wilkins, and John Zuern.

Review:

The five editors (four males and a female) deliver everything implied by their book's provocative title in these 13 essays addressing an absence of male embodiment in feminist literature. Their five-year-long collaborative effort legitimizes itself as scholarly by having produced and elicited works grounded mainly in philosophical concepts of Michel Foucault, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Jacques Lacan. Arranged in four principal parts―The Phallus and the Penis, Masculine Myths and Male Bodies, Constructing Male Space, and Ethical Significance of Male Bodies―the essays reflect their authors' diverse backgrounds in philosophy, theology, sociology, religious studies, intercultural studies, literacy, language, rhetoric, literary studies, English, and architecture. The bounty of this team's clarity and persistence is incisive exploration into myths and concepts of masculinity and the lived male experience. Themes, for example, concern the ways that race, sex and sexuality, gender, identity, power, and space impact socially, politically, and personally as well as ethically and spiritually. This is a book that one recommends but does not lend, peruses and returns to, and that will prompt one to finish that journal article or register for that course of study. It surely will stimulate any reader. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels and collections. (G. D. Claiborne University of Maryland University College , 2003mar CHOICE)
