Manhood in the Making

Cultural Concepts of Masculinity

Book - 1990
Rate this:
In the first cross-cultural study of manhood as an achieved status, anthropologist David D. Gilmore finds that a culturally sanctioned stress on manliness--on toughness and aggressiveness, stoicism and sexuality--is almost universal, deeply ingrained in the consciousness of hunters and fishermen, workers and warriors, poets and peasants who have little else in common.

Books and books such as these need to be re-printed and available for public borrowing and usage. They are stored in museums as though African Americans do not need the information they include right now.
