This collection of essays exposes the contradictions and constituencies in the ongoing reconstruction of white heterosexual masculinity during the 1980s and 1990s. From the rock 'n' roll "bodies" of Bruce Springsteen, Axl Rose and the late Kurt Cobain, the "male-rampage" films "Die Hard" and "Lethal Weapon", and the "sensitive transformation" movies that followed in their wake, through to Fred Pfeil's humorous observations of the men's movement: Pfeil considers white, mainstream masculinity through direct participation in its rituals and practices.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Something rare--cultural studies you can actually use."--Spin

"Pfeil's wit and originality make his media exploration of men a pleasure to read."--The Women's Review of Books

"Pfeil is a superb writer ... His readings of the bodily iconography of the male rock star, especially Bruce Springsteen and Axl Rose, are brilliant."--Michael Kimmel

"Among current anatomists of American pop culture, Fred Pfeil is the zestiest, the most relentless and radically intelligent. White Guys is his best--and scariest--vivisection to date."--Thomas Disch
