Synopsis: The writers in this book explore an area of men's lives which men traditionally find difficult to talk about. Focusing on the repressed aspects of men's emotional involvement with others, the book looks at how men can come to terms with their anger and violence without projecting it onto women and gay men. Above all, it discusses new ways for men to relate to themselves and others
