A Man's World: How Real is Male Privilege--and how High is Its Price?
Are men really under siege in today's society? Ellis Cose reports on the discontent and confusion men are feeling as changing gender roles and expectations challenge the very core of male identity. As Cose makes clear in A Man's World, white men are not the only males feeling vulnerable and off balance. Black men are considered a pathologically dangerous and endangered species. Latinos are told that their culture is irredeemably sexist. Whatever their class or ethnicity, men are being held to a very different standard - socially and sexually - than were their counterparts of a generation ago. Many fear that their rights and roles are shrinking before their eyes. Using the combination of interviews, reportage and analysis that distinguished his critically acclaimed The Rage of a Privileged Class, Ellis Cose investigates this growing problem and puts it into context, providing men and women with a reasoned and informative guide to navigating an increasingly bewildering world.
