Male Subjectivity at the Margins

Front Cover
"Silverman sets out to offer a bold new look at some masculinities which deviate from the social norm. This book looks at male film-makers, novelists and literary cinematic characters who position themselves more as "women" than as "men" and in so doing surrender male power and privilege."--Pub. desc.
