This book draws upon anthropology, feminism and postmodernism to offer a penetrating and challenging study of how gender operates. The book offers a radical critique of much of the recent writing on and by men and raises important questions about emodiment, agency and the variety of masculine styles.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Cornwall and Lindisfarne make quite convincing criticisms that should be carefully considered by all scholars concerned with the deconstruction of men and masculinity."
-"Men and Masculinities This is . . . the first collection of anthropology articles to address the question of masculinity both theoretically and ethnographically. As such, it is to be warmly welcom
." . . a timely volume with an important introduction by the editors which will set the terms of the debate on issues of men and masculinity for some time to come. The arguments should be accessible to advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students, and the book will be useful in anthropology and gender courses alike."
-Sherry B. Ortner, University of Michigan
"The authors of this quite impressive and path-setting collection of articles are primarily British writers...The clearly written and focused studies are mostly products of a London University Research Group and a seminar series. They are not formula-produced studies, but are shaped editorially so as to be easily comparable, and of great value for all classes in gender studies...the contributors have taken a giant step beyond inappropriate generalizing and abstracting in masculinist studies."
-William G. Doty, "Journal of Men's Studies
