This exploration of the cultural models of manhood examines the nomadic Gabra people of Kenya who denigrate women and feminine things yet regard their most prestigious men as women. In the study, the author offers insights into our own culture's understanding of gender and function in society.

The writing is finely crafted and Wood s knowledge of Gabra society is extensive and nuanced. I know of no study comparable to this.
