Drawing together the broad range of theoretical issues posed in the new study of masculinity, contributors from diverse backgrounds address in this volume the different disciplinary roots of theories of masculinity - sociology, psychoanalysis, ethnography, and inequality studies. Subsequent chapters theoretically model many issues central to the study of men - power, ethnicity, feminism, homophobia - or develop theoretical explanations of some of the institutions most closely identified with men including the military and the men's movement.

The Making of Black English Masculinities

The making of black english masculinities
Mairtin Mac AnGhaill

The white man hates the black man. In Africa they tried to destroy us, you know. The white Christians had a problem. All men were supposed to be equal. But they were enslaving the black man. So the white man thought, well blacks are not real men. And this is still going on in Africa, here and everywhere today. So the black man is always under pressure, has to make sure they don't wipe our race out. And now the younger ones have to defend our families, defend our people. The whites know we are strong because we have always fought back and they are afraid of us.
