"Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era"

by Michael Kimmel

Everywhere we turn, there are pockets of rage among American men. Why would middle class white men be so angry? In this lecture drawn from the book ANGRY WHITE MEN, Kimmel will discuss why men seem so angry, and the different groups that organize and express that anger -- from men's rights groups, to men who "go postal" in their workplaces, to angry white boys, to the extreme right wing.
