Write The First Customer Review

In the course of several centuries, Western masculinity has established itself as the voice of reason, knowledge, and sanity--the basis for patriarchal rule--in the face of massive testimony to the contrary. Micale challenges this triumphant vision by examining the central role played by modern science and medicine in constructing and sustaining it.
