Nicholson "presents a series of motifs that are associated with male envy, locating each in a particular historical context and illustrating it with examples drawn from literature, film, and popular culture. Unlike earlier treatments of envy by psychoanalysts or feminist theorists, this book moves beyond mere illustration of the problem to actually construct a theory about how the 'code of Male Envy' shapes social consciousness in modern culture." Brown leatherette w/gilt lettering, pp [x], 261 (including index, brief author biography). A bit of spine slant, moderate bumping/wear to corners/spine ends, small circular scrape/flake to back cover, diagonal impression/scratch across spine.
