In recent decades, the myth of fashionable women and sartorially challenged men has been overturned not least through the proliferation of men's style magazines such as GQ and the emergence of masculinity as a marketing tool. In this engaging book, Edwards applies a sociological approach to our understanding of men's fashion, which he argues is significant in the nexus of masculinity and society, past and present, rather than a narrow artistic or aesthetic interest. Rejecting an essentialist or 'natural' origin, Edwards explores how masculinity and men's fashion are constructed, particularly in relation to consumer society. It is the growing commodification and aestheticism of everyday life, alongside developments in marketing and advertising, that Edwards identifies as the catalyst in the emergence of men's fashion, rather than an abstract 'crisis of masculinity' or 'new man' identity. Concurrently, in the 1980s, changes in demography, economics and ideology gave certain men greater freedom and spending power than ever before. Edwards investigates how these men, clearly distinguished by age, class and sexual orientation, were seduced by advertisers with sexualised images of suited city gents and body-beautiful boys in Levis, and how the resultant process of consumption was facilitated through developments in the practice of shopping itself, such as easy access to credit. He examines the influence of the advertisers' message in creating a hierarchy of masculinity in which some men are valorised and others are denigrated. Starting with a historical review of men's fashion and a discussion of its importance and meanings, Edwards goes on to analyse the contemporary marketing of menswear and masculinity in advertising and in the media, and considers the politics of fashion for men in terms of gender, class, race and sexuality.

While the world has undoubtedly been shrinking, at the same time it has grown more complex. The likelihood of culture clashes leading to outright conflict is high, perhaps higher than ever. As Andrea L. Smith convincingly argues in her new introduction to this classic work, certain questions are as valid today as in 1949, when Mirror for Man was first published. Can anthropology break down prejudices that exist between peoples and nations? Can knowledge of past human behavior help solve the world’s modern problems? What effect will American attitudes likely have on the future of the world? In Mirror for Man, Clyde Kluckhohn scrutinizes anthropology, showing how the discipline can contribute to the reconciliation of conflicting cultures. He questions age-old race theories, shows how people came to be as they are, and examines limitations in how human beings can be molded. Taking up one of the most vital questions in the post-World War II world, whether international order can be achieved by domination, Kluckhohn demonstrates that cultural clashes drive much of the world’s conflict, and shows how we can help resolve it if only we are willing to work for joint understanding. By interpreting human behavior, Kluckhohn reveals that anthropology can make a practical contribution through its predictive power in the realm of politics, social attitudes, and group psychology. Andrea L. Smith’s new introduction provides convincing evidence for the continuing importance of one of the earliest “public intellectuals.”

What goes on in the mind of a person as they succumb to Alzheimer’s disease? Zoe Murdock does a masterful job of portraying that in her new novel, Man in the Mirror. But it's so much more than a novel about a man succumbing to Alzheimer’s; it’s the story of a man’s life. Aaron Young seems to be a simple man, but the more the disease takes away his short-term memory, and the more he wants to hold on to his long-term memories. He wants to relive his life. He wants to find meaning in it. He wants to understand what went wrong with his marriage and with the relationship with his son. He wants to recapture the significance he found during his service in the Air Force during World War II when he flew dangerous missions “over the hump” from India to China. He goes on the road and picks up hitchhikers, and he learns from them, even as they are learning from him.

Life is the ultimate team sport, you simply can't go through it alone. It took me a long time to realize just how true that was. Once I did, it was life changing, and this book talks about my journey to developing a man in the mirror I could be proud of while living a life to make a difference, and make my family proud. It was a bumpy road, and I am nowhere near content with the man I am, but everyday is a step in the right direction. Today when I look in the mirror, I see all the men and women who helped me become the man I am today. These reflections are just a fraction of my journey, but I wish to share with you reflections from the deepest depths of my heart and soul that have drastically altered the course of my life.
