Description

"Men Are Animals: Category Politics and Biological Distress in Mexico City and Shanghai"
Matthew Gutmann
Professor of Anthropology
Faculty Fellow, Watson Instittute for International Studies
Brown University

"Men Are Animals" explores popular enthusiasm for putative scientific beliefs that men have minimal control over their sexual and violent "natures" and they must be managed and restrained, usually by societal restrictions, and by the women in their lives.
