The nature of masculinity is a popular subject for contemporary authors, either treated critically from a sociological standpoint, or analysed from a psychological and spiritual perspective.

In Remaking Men: Jung, Spirituality and Social Change, David Tacey argues that we must strive to bridge the gap between these two separate traditions – masculinity should neither be discussed merely as a product of socio-political forces, nor hijacked by the spiritual men’s movement influenced by Jung.

Examining his own and other men’s experience in a critical and lively discourse he evades the simplistic optimism of the ‘inner journey’ approach and the chronic pessimism of contemporary academic arguments.  This is a fascinating and very accessible look at masculinity for those who want to explore self and society with intelligence and soul.
