What It Means to Be a Man begins with a discussion of machismo set in the context of the social construction of masculinity. Ramírez presents his interpretation of what it means to be a Puerto Rican man, discussing the attributes and demands of masculinity, and pointing out the ways in which strength, competition, and sexuality are joined with power and pleasure. He examines the erotic relationships between men as part of the expressions of masculinity, and analyzes how the homosexual experience reproduces the dominant masculine ideology.

Proving Manhood

"Timothy Beneke's honest and thorough book provides us with the most intriguing discussion of the psychological roots of sexism and homophobia yet written."--Richard Isay, author of Becoming Gay "The best theorizing about the behavior and consciousness of men that I've read in years. Remarkable for the author's reflexivity, his willingness to probe his own emotions and experiences, the originality of his conclusions. A most important contribution to our understanding of 'compulsive masculinity' and why men are as we are, and how we can change."--Bob Blauner, author of Black Lives, White Lives "An important book that should be read by all who would like to eradicate sexism from their lives and their society. His nuanced and thoughtful treatment of men's inhumanity towards women neither blames nor excuses, but offers insight into the deeper causes of sexism and thereby the possibility of change."--Robin Lakoff, Dept. of Linguistics, UC Berkeley "A startling, thoughtful book. Whether ruminating on the numbing self-alienation of reading the sports page, or going through the motions as an anti-rape activist, Tim Beneke's relentless self-examination and careful theoretical exposition allow him to probe men's power and men's pain without reducing one to the other. I've rarely read a work that is as painfully honest and as analytically perceptive."--Michael Kimmel, Dept. of Sociology, SUNY, Stonybrook "Thoughtfully traces the meaning, for men and women both, of the often painful, tired, and tiring injunction to 'act like a man.' Mixing personal storytelling and theoretical reflection, Beneke brings together an enormous range of subjects: the pages of sports and pornography and those of psychoanalytic and feminist theories, homophobic straight men and sexist gay ones, his own mother and his own maleness. Digging at the roots of contemporary manhood, this book is a provocative, welcome search for a masculinity that does not require a constant, compulsive and costly proof."--Joshua Gamson, Dept. of Sociology, Yale University "Proving Manhood is not just another book about men's sexism. It is a revealing exploration of men's pain and the sources of what the author calls compulsive masculinity. Tim Beneke has done what I thought couldn't be done--written a book that brings fresh understanding to men's issues and done it in a way that engaged me from beginning to end. This is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the modern American man and his struggle with the women in his life."--Lillian Rubin "Proving Manhood leads both men and women towards a new psychology of men, and ultimately of "persons." Like his earlier reflections on men and rape, he captures the essentials of men trying to keep up with the changes brought about by the woman's movement with both seriousness and humor. This book is required reading for all who want to move from a "macho" man to a "new man" without giving up the finer parts of masculinity."--Lenore Walker, author of The Battered Woman "A brave book with great explanatory power." --Judith Newton, University of California, Davis

Give A Man A Fish

In Give a Man a Fish James Ferguson examines the rise of social welfare programs in southern Africa, in which states make cash payments to their low income citizens. More than thirty percent of South Africa's population receive such payments, even as pundits elsewhere proclaim the neoliberal death of the welfare state. These programs' successes at reducing poverty under conditions of mass unemployment, Ferguson argues, provide an opportunity for rethinking contemporary capitalism and for developing new forms of political mobilization. Interested in an emerging "politics of distribution," Ferguson shows how new demands for direct income payments (including so-called "basic income") require us to reexamine the relation between production and distribution, and to ask new questions about markets, livelihoods, labor, and the future of progressive politics.

J. Glenn Gray entered the army in May 1941, having been drafted on the same day he achieved his doctorate in philosophy from Columbia University. Over a decade after his discharge in 1945, Gray began to reread his war journals and letters in an attempt to find meaning in his wartime experiences. The result is a philosophical meditation on what warfare does to us and why soldiers act as they do.

This book of poems were written in the attempt to get Gods message out, I had a heavenly encounter with God and was taken out of body, mind or spirit I can not really tell which but I know it was for the purpose of uniting all people for the common good. Some of these poems deals with secular life and some are written from a more spiritual venue but as Jesus use parables to explain the good and bad of our actions so have I been instructed to do as well. When we dabble in things that has no profi t only destruction then there is an equal reaction to all actions. These words are the inspired works of God and will truly bless all that read them. They will offer inspiration, courage, guidance and wisdom. If the reader keeps an open mind and let the Holy spirit talk to their subconscious: Gods words do not go away into the void but they accomplish what they are sent out to accomplish. This book will have a universal appeal to all its readers and will give all readers a greater insight into the mind of the author whom happens to be a black man, but more important a child of God. Its purpose is to unite all races to come together as one people. There is no difference between the Jew and Greek, bond nor free, for whosoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. I profess we all are whosoever, whether red, yellow, black, brown or white, we are all precious in Gods sight. Read these poems with an open mind and a receptive heart and I guarantee you will be truly blessed by reading them as I was blessed by writing them. May God bless all of his children with good health, happiness and prosperity, is my hearts desire and prayer.
