Not only a highly significant contribution to the debate about masculinity, this outstanding volume breaks new ground in psychological theorizing generally. Tatham's passionate and disciplined text will set the agenda for the 1990's. -Andrew Samuels, author of The Father

Tatham combines innovative psychological insight with the imaginative language of a poet. -Dr. Mario Jacoby, Ph. D., C. J. Jung Institute, Zurich

In the Makings of Maleness, Jungian analyst Peter Tatham argues that the time for the hero as a model for maleness is past, and suggests that many of the difficulties between men and women, as well as the patriarchal slant of our culture, result from an over reliance upon the heroic as an archetypal stance that underlies consciousness. What maleness needs today is not merely to be more aware of its female counterpart, but to develop a different understanding of its own male nature. As a model more in keeping with the epoch and its needs, Tatham puts forward this archetypal image in the person and story of Daedalus, the master-craftsman of Greek mythology. Peter Tatham, by overturning various stereotypical positions, frees the reader to examine the notion that there can exist many different kinds of maleness.

About the Author:

Peter Tatham is a Jungian analyst in private practice. He was trained at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich.

Review:

"With this meticulous investigation of how institutional racism operated in the military of the 1960s and 70s, James Westheider provides us with a model for making sense of institutional sexism in the Tailhook-era military." -Cynthia Enloe, author of "The Morning After: Sexual Politics at the End of the Cold War"

"Westheider has researched very thoroughly-an effort including extensive interviews with Vietnam veterans-and he possesses a rare gift for narrative that makes the result of all this research eminently readable. A highly desirable addition for both African American studies and military affairs collections. . . . [an] invaluable history."-"Booklist",

"Highly recommended." -"Library Journal",

"A very powerful account of a significant aspect of recent American military history." -"Journal of Military History",

"James E. Westheider persuasively argues that black soldiers were the key factor in bringing about a more egalitarian military. This book significantly advances our understanding of both race relations and armed forces." -Charles Moskos, Northwestern University
