The Making of a Man
Dr. John Ashfield
Reclaiming masculinity and manhood in the light of reason.
Making sense of the issues of gender, masculinity and manhood, has for decades been bedevilled by rigid gender ideology.
This book bravely departs from the status quo and proposes a refreshingly different view.
Drawing from a number of major authors and different disciplines it crafts key findings into a compelling and coherent alternative perspective, complete with new definitions and suggestions for further enquiry.
Though offering a basic critique of anti-male feminism, it abstains from reactionism, and instead advocates a common standard of equity and respectful dialogue for both genders.
The book challenges the moral legitimacy of attempts at social engineering and ‘welfare’ efforts that are not informed by the best available knowledge about what we are, how we think and feel, and why we behave in certain sex specific ways.
