Toronto, Canada : Inner City Books, c1987.
141 p.; 22 cm
In this 141 page book, the author looks at the old patriarchal values regarding men and discusses how the essential characteristics of the masculine must be differentiated from the entrenched attitudes of the patriarchy. This book "is concerned with the archetypal basis of masculinity. Through close examination of the physical, mythological and psychological manifestations of phallos, the author discovers an autonomous inner god, coequal with the maternal principle as an originating force in the psyche. Phallos emerges here as an essentially mysterious divine reality that is at once practical and numinous, object of fascination and religious devotion for both men and women - a signature of personal identity for half the human race."
