Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contributors to this volume, which is based on the first conference devoted to Bly's 1996 social critique , represent philosophy, psychology, literature, mythology, ethics, sociology, education, theology, anthropology, and the arts. Their essays ponder some of the issues raised by Bly, including the transmission of culture, the destructive power of television, the psychosocial impact of African American fathers on their daughters, the alienation of young men, a shift toward "feminine" principles in organizational theory, and technology vs. nature. The volume would have benefited from a closer proofreading. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
