Book Description

This thought-provoking book, first published in 1991, examines sexual politics in a world which is being radically changed by the challenges of feminism. Seidler explores how men have responded to feminism, and the contradictory feelings men have towards dominant forms of masculinity.

Seidler’s stimulating and original analysis of social and political theory connects personally to everyday issues in people’s lives. It reflects the growing importance of sexual and personal politics within contemporary politics and culture, and demonstrates clearly the challenge that feminism brings to our inherited forms of morality, politics and sexuality.

‘In seeking the sources of well-worn patterns, the incomprehension, anger and resentment which often explode in male/female relationships become more comprehensible ... Helpful, clear and demystifying’ – Sheila Rowbotham
