Mazis (humanities and philosophy, Pennsylvania State Univ.) provides a wonderfully sensitive discussion of male archetypes that have been largely neglected by the men's movement. For Mazis, the Trickster, the Magician, and the Grieving Man are important to connecting men with feelings (the painful, the playful, the humorous) in everyday life. Beginning with a marvelous analysis of Desert Storm and its analogs in heroic legend, Mazis leads his reader to oases that celebrate interconnection, wonder, willingness to let things happen (rather than asserting control), and facing one's own vulnerability. Highly recommended for public, seminary, and undergraduate libraries.
