The gender debate is heated and ongoing, but this is the first book to examine how our preferred vision of masculinity was developed historically by default - through establishing definitions of deviance. In this elegant work of uncommon authority and insight, Angus McLaren successfully challenges some of our most fundamental assumptions about the origin of gender and compels us to reassess our ideas about sexual boundaries and the essential limits of the masculine.
