What do men—white straight men in particular—want? In a series of witty and provocative investigations of American popular culture, Fred Pfeil exposes the contradictions in the construction of white heterosexual masculinity over the last fifteen years. White Guys probes such topics as the rock‘n’roll bodies of Bruce Springsteen, Axl Rose, and the late Kurt Cobain; the “male rampage” films Die Hard and Lethal Weapon and the films of “sensitive transformation” that followed in their wake; and the curious yet symptomatic activities of the men’s movement whose “rituals” Pfeil has investigated firsthand.
