Men today are conscious of many dilemmas. The new role of women has thrown a fresh light on male status and identity, and changing economic and social conditions raise similar issues. Belief in a sole, exclusively male deity is on the wane in many quarters and the idea of male supremacy is becoming outmoded. Where might man now look for images to inspire and uplift? What does it mean to be a hero? What social and psychological issues currently affect men and how might these be addressed?
Looking at ancient gods and old stories, addressing issues such as sensitivity in men, the warrior ethic and respect for Nature, the authors explore fresh approaches to these and other contemporary concepts. Men of all ages and persuasions can find something in these pages to provoke thought, inspire and hearten.
