Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A masculinity studies pioneer convenes male and female cultural critics, film scholars, and performance artists who, in 17 essays, seek to lift taboos on the ways men's bodies and diverse sexualities are portrayed and perceived. Lehman (humanities, Arizona State U., Tempe) applies his concept of the "melodramatic penis" to recent films. Includes several b&w photos of film and stage performances and lynchings of African-American men for alleged intimacy with white women. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
