I thought that members of the GENDER-RELIGION discussion group may be
interested in the following publication from Blackwell Publishers:
The Masculinity Studies Reader
Edited by David Savran & Rachel Adams
This Reader provides a collection of previously published essays that have
defined the interdisciplinary study of masculinity. Theorists such as
Kimmel, Halperin, Geertz, Dyer and Boyarin contribute, and an introductory
essay by the editors frames widely-read and cited work in a new context
that is intended to establish the contours of and to raise questions about
masculinity as a field of academic inquiry.
