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: A Cultural History, Fourth 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.

Marlene Kim Connor's anatomy of cool reveals it as a vital code of behaviors and attitudes that plays an often disregarded role in shaping the conception of manhood among young black boys: "Cool, at its most basic, is a way of living and surviving in an inhospitable environment, a rational reaction to an irrational situation, a way of fitting in while standing out, of gaining respect while instilling fear." In this thoughtful, impassioned, and provocative book, Connor uncovers cool's history, explores its essence, and explains why, even though it deserves praise, cool often becomes an insidious force affecting black American life today.

Whether Dad's absence stems from divorce, passive withdrawal, or his never having been a permanent part of the household, fatherless families number in the millions. The result: imbalanced family lives and children -- especially boys -- who may grow up with the same devil-may-care attitudes because of the lack of a male role model. Weldon Hardenbrook claims that men "have lost their way to true manhood and thrown responsibility to the wind." Thus, women have had to take over as disciplinarians and breadwinners and serve as both mother and father to their children. When this happens, warns Hardenbrook, "it threatens the stability of an entire society. Dad's disappearance is exacting a disastrous toll on those around him." What can today's family do? How can men regain their roles as leaders in home, church, and society? Hasn't Dad been missing long enough? Hardenbrook gives answers in Missing from Action. - Jacket flap.

Manhood and American Political Culture in the Cold War explores the meaning of anxiety as expressed through the political and cultural language of the early cold war era. Cuordileone shows how the preoccupation with the soft, malleable American character reflected not only anti-Communism but acute anxieties about manhood and sexuality. Reading major figures like Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Adlai Stevenson, Joseph McCarthy, Norman Mailer, JFK, and many lesser known public figures, Cuordileone reveals how the era’s cult of toughness shaped the political dynamics of the time and inspired a reinvention of the liberal as a cold warrior.
