UVic historian Angus McLaren maintains that our concept of masculinity is a cultural product in Trials of Masculinity: Policing Sexual Boundaries 1870-1930 (University of Chicago Press). McLaren and SFU's Arlene Tigar McLaren have also revised Bedroom and the State (OUP $17.95), published eleven years ago, to discuss the pro-choice/pro-life debate in Canada and examine how control of fertility has dramatically affected power relations between the sexes. 0195413180
