Nearly twice the size of its predecessor, this revised edition of August's landmark work contains more than 1,000 entries that cover such subjects as men's awareness, health, and rights; heterosexuality; homosexuality; minority males; patriarchy; fathers; socialization of males; sports; the arts; humor; war and peace; and victims and victimizers. It is the first book-length bibliography of the new men's studies in existence. An extensive list of books from the widely publicized and controversial mythopoetic wing of men's studies covers such works as Robert Bly's Iron John. Each entry is fully annotated and describes the book's content and (where appropriate) its political stance. A unique feature of the annotations is the attention given to misandry or anti-male sexism, which portrays males as inherently evil or masculinity as irrevocably corrupted. Intended to complement library holdings on women's studies, the book is aimed at upper-level educators interested in reviewing current trends in men
