"This book questions the persistence of the emotionally alienated male in narratives of white, middle-class masculinity and addresses the political and social implications of male emotional expression." — Brandeis Review

"This collection of eleven scholarly essays successfully combines a cultural history of male emotion with detailed readings of male-authored texts . . . Shamir and Travis's collection discovers male emotionality to be far more intricate than many facile equations of masculine subjectivity . . . are inclined to allow for." — Berthold Schoene, Modernism/Modernity
