Analyzing the meanings of masculinity in contemporary culture, this book looks at cultural male icons such as Muhammad Ali and Jean-Claude Van Damme, and explodes male stereotypes such as the cowboy, the father and the homosexual. Written by cultural-studies scholars from departments of film, media studies, English, women's studies and sociology, it aims to examine almost every conceivable issue concerning the multiple and complex meanings of masculinity.
