The late-twentieth-century anxiety about a 'crisis in masculinity' still persists today, particularly in English-speaking cultures. Studying Men and Masculinities offers an engaging and comprehensive overview of masculinity. Drawing on a wide range of cultural practices and texts from different genres and media, David Buchbinder examines the notion of patriarchy and the challenges to patriarchal power, including queer theory. The book considers whether crisis may in fact be built into the very structure of the masculine, and examines emergent masculinities post-9/11. Theoretical positions within the field are clearly explained and applied to real life case studies from literature, film, and television. Interspersed in each chapter are a series of questions and tasks aimed at encouraging the reader to engage her/himself in the study of masculinities in everyday life and popular culture. This topical and thought-provoking book will be an invaluable resource for students of masculinities studies, sexuality studies, cultural studies, and gender theory.

Accumulating discussions and renewed focus on the study of the Psalms and mythology have stimulated scholars to address issues of interest prevalent in contemporary research.

The exposition of Psalm texts against the background of their different historical, cultic, and mythological settings in the ancient Near East sets as a firm basis for their reapplication in the Church and society today. In the history of interpretation the Psalms have proven themselves to be natural texts for a variety of uses inside and outside the Church. This book revives various ways of interpreting and applying the Psalms.
