£31.50

Synopsis

With essays ranging in topic from the films of Neil La Bute to the sexual politics of Major League Baseball, this diverse collection of essays examines the multi-faceted media images of contemporary masculinity from a variety of perspectives and academic disciplines. The book's first half focuses on the issue of racialized masculinity and its various manifestations, with essays covering, among other topics, the re-imagining of Asian masculinity in Justin Lin's ""Better Luck Tomorrow"" and the ever-present image of black male buffoonery in the neo-minstrel performances of VH1's ""Flavor of Love"". The book's second half explores the issue of contemporary mediated performance and the cultural politics of masculinity, with essays focusing on popular media representations of men in a variety of gendered roles, from homemakers and househusbands to valorous war heroes and athletic demigods.
