9780340808320: Representing Men: Maleness and Masculinity in the Media (Arnold Publication)

Representing Men takes its cue from the greater visibility of men's studies in the 1990s. It interests itself in the way that mass media do not so much "reflect" masculinity in society as "teach" it, by creating or reinforcing its images. The ideas of many books and articles of particularly the last two decades are synthesized to show the range of masculinities. While these publications normally deal with one specific medium apiece, the present study considers four distinct, if related, media: movies, television, advertising, and sports coverage (especially on television and in newspapers).
