Lehman brings together new work on masculinity in film by established film scholars, new academics, performance artists, and cultural critics. The essays analyze trends from the role of gay men in saving heterosexuality to the emergence of new queer cinema.


"…Lehman offers us a fascinating menu of how notions of masculinity are fabricated and maintained." -- Village Voice
