Seven diverse texts include a critical overview of the featured works, a discussion of current sociological models of masculine roles, an analysis of Jackson Pollock's drip paintings as embodiments of male sexual display, and examinations of the concepts of manhood informing the film personae of Cary Grant and Eddie Murphy.
