About this product
- DescriptionAlthough patriarchy, machismo, and excessive masculine displays are assumed to be prevalent among Latis in general and Mexicans in particular, little is kwn about Lati men or macho masculinity. Hombres y Machos: Masculinity and Lati Culture fills an important void by providing an integrated view of Lati men, masculinity, and fatherhood--in the process refuting many common myths and misconceptions.Examining how Lati men view themselves, Alfredo Mirande argues that prevailing conceptions of men, masculinity, and gender are inadequate because they are based t on universal rms but on limited and culturally specific conceptions. Findings are presented from in-depth personal interviews with Lati men (specifically, fathers with at least one child between the ages of four and eighteen living at home) from four geographical regions and from a broad cross-section of the Lati population: working and middle class, foreign-born and native-born. Topics range from views on machos and machismo to beliefs regarding masculinity and fatherhood. In addition to reporting research findings and placing them within a historical context, Mirande draws important insights from his own life.Hombres y Machos calls for the development of Chica/Lati men's studies and will be a significant and provocative addition to the growing literature on gender, masculinity, and race. It will appeal to the general reader and is bound to be an important supplementary text for courses in ethnic studies, women's studies, men's studies, family studies, sociology, psychology, social work, and law.
