Recent years have seen a growing world-wide concern about men and boys. Do boys have appropriate role models at home? Are girls outperforming boys at school? Is men's health under undue pressure? The nature of masculinity has been brought into question by a radical reorganisation of gender relations. Indeed, many now speak of a 'crisis in masculinity'. South Africa has made a rapid shift from a male-dominated patriarchal society, to a new social order based on ideals of equality between men and women. How have men responded to these changes? How do men achieve successful masculinity in this new context? These are some of the questions that are explored in this title.

Even in our modern progressive world, it's not easy to be a gay man. While young gay men often come out more readily, even those from the most liberal of backgrounds still struggle to accept themselves and experience stigma, shame and difficulties with intimate relationships. They also suffer from ongoing trauma wrought by the AIDS epidemic, something that is all too often relegated to history. Drawing on a lifetime's work as a clinical psychologist, Walt Odets uses the stories of his patients as well as the stories of his own deep relationships with other gay men to illuminate these difficulties and how they may be overcome. He explores everything from how defining gay men as merely "homosexuals" is reductive and damaging to their emotional lives, to the way stigma, shame and trauma continue to shift and follow gay men throughout their lives even as society becomes - on a surface level - more accepting. He shows us how a new way forward is possible through rejecting the currently-fashionable assimilation politics, learning to accept ourselves and others as they are, and independently inventing our own lives.
No man fails on purpose. Quite the opposite. When our feet hit the floor every morning, we're looking for a win.
But these are turbulent times to be a man. In gathering material for this book, Morley interviewed many men. Their input was powerful. And transparent. They agreed that it's increasingly difficult to juggle all their responsibilities as men, husbands, fathers, friends, workers, churchmen, and citizens. As Nick put it, "It feels almost impossible to live out a biblical model of manhood."
We all feel it, don't we? Something about this world just isn't right. There are so many voices phishing to get inside our heads. It feels like we're being "hacked." Spiritually hacked.
No one understands what you're going through more than men's expert Patrick Morley, author of the landmark bestseller The Man in the Mirror, which has sold over 4 million copies. And now, Morley has put together a game plan so you can get that win you're looking for. The Christian Man is filled with powerful stories and refreshingly practical answers to questions like:
- How can I lead a more balanced life?
- How can I have a deeper walk with God?
- What makes a great husband?
- How can I become a dad who makes a difference?
- How should I think about my work?
- What's the right way to deal with lust?
By the end of this must-read book, you will know how to intentionally release the power of God on the issues that matter most to you. You'll be able to walk with confidence in the one identity that matters most: The Christian Man.

While masculinity studies enjoy considerable growth in the West, there is very little analysis of African masculinities. This volume explores what it means for an African to be masculine and how male identity is shaped by cultural forces. The editors believe that to tackle the important questions in Africa - the many forms of violence (wars, genocides, familial violence and crime) and the AIDS pandemic - it is necessary to understand how a combination of a colonial past, patriarchal cultural structures and a variety of religious and knowledge systems creates masculine identities and sexualities. The work done in the book particularly bears in mind how vulnerability and marginalization produce complex forms of male identity. The book is interdisciplinary and is the first in-depth and comprehensive study of African men as a gendered category.
Fearless feminist Clementine Ford’s incendiary first book, Fight Like A Girl, is taking the world by storm, galvanizing women to demand and fight for real equality and not merely the illusion of it.
Now Boys Will Be Boys examines what needs to change for that equality to become a reality. It answers the question most asked of Clementine: "How do I raise my son to respect women and give them equal space in the world? How do I make sure he's a supporter and not a perpetrator?"
Ford demolishes the age-old assumption that superiority and aggression are natural realms for boys, and demonstrates how toxic masculinity creates a disturbingly limited and potentially dangerous idea of what it is to be a man. Crucially, Boys Will Be Boys reveals how the patriarchy we live in is as harmful to boys and men as it is to women and girls, and asks what we have to do to reverse that damage. The world needs to — this book shows the way.
The time has come for Catholic men to take up their God- ordained role as priest, prophet, and king of their families. In The Three Marks of Manhood, author and psychologist G. C. Dilsaver shows you how to do this by wielding the three staffs of patriarchy: the Scepter of authority and self-discipline, the Crosier of spiritual stewardship, and the Cross of redemptive suffering. This familial headship to which God calls Christian patriarchs is not the old pagan notion of brute dominance over wife and children, but rather a loving authority that is unequivocal yet self-sacrificial just like Christ's. Indeed, it is only by imitating Our Lord's headship over His Church that men can lead their families to become what God intended, and empower them to resist the threats of secular culture. The Three Marks of Manhood is a bold and wise book that will show both husbands and wives the way to greater virtue and happiness. Read it and learn how to build a strong and lasting marriage, raise children to become faithful men and women of God, and foster an authentic Catholic culture in your home.

This is an exciting new edition of R.W. Connella s ground--breaking text, which has become a classic work on the nature and construction of masculine identity. Connell argues that there is not one masculinity, but many different masculinities, each associated with different positions of power. In a world gender order that continues to privilege men over women, but also raises difficult issues for men and boys, his account is more pertinent than ever before. In a substantial new introduction and conclusion, Connell discusses the development of masculinity studies in the ten years since the booka s initial publication. He explores global gender relations, new theories, and practical uses of mascunlinity research. Looking to the future, his new concluding chapter addresses the politics of masculinities, and the implications of masculinity research for understanding current world issues. Against the backdrop of an increasingly divided world, dominated by neo--conservative politics, Connella s account highlights a series of compelling questions about the future of human society. This second edition of Connella s classic book will be essential reading for students taking courses on masculinities and gender studies, and will be of interest to students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences.
With limited resources to contextualize masculinity in colonial Mexico, film, literature, and social history perpetuate the stereotype associating Mexican men with machismo--defined as excessive virility that is accompanied by bravado and explosions of violence. While scholars studying men's gender identities in the colonial period have used Inquisition documents to explore their subject, these documents are inherently limiting given that the men described in them were considered to be criminals or otherwise marginal. Nineteenth- and twentieth-century resources, too, provide a limited perspective on machismo in the colonial period. The Origins of Macho addresses this deficiency by basing its study of colonial Mexican masculinity on the experiences of mainstream men. Lipsett-Rivera traces the genesis of the Mexican macho by looking at daily interactions between Mexican men in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In doing so she establishes an important foundation for gender studies in Mexico and Latin America and makes a significant contribution to the larger field of masculinity studies.
