1800-987-323 Disarming Manhood: Roots of Ethical Resistance (English) by David A.J. Richards

Format Paperback

Condition Brand New

Language English

Masculine codes of honor and dominance often are expressed in acts of violence, including war and terrorism. In Disarming Manhood: Roots of Ethical Resistance, David A.J. Richards examines the lives of five famous men—great leaders and crusaders—who actively resisted violence and presented their causes with more humane alternatives. Richards argues that Winston Churchill, William Lloyd Garrison, Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Leo Tolstoy shared a psychology whose nonviolent roots were deeply influenced by a loving, maternalistic ethos deeply influenced by the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Drawing upon psychology, history, political theory, and literature, Richards threads a connection between these leaders and the maternal figures who profoundly shaped their responses to conflict. Their lives and work underscore how the outlook of maternal care givers and women enables some men to resist the violent responses characteristic of traditional manhood. The voice of nonviolent masculinity has empowered important democratic movements of ethical transformation, including civil disobedience in South Africa, India, and the United States. Disarming Manhood demonstrates that as Churchill, Garrison, Gandhi, King, and Tolstoy carried out their various missions they were galvanized by teachings whose ethical foundations rejected unjust violence and favored peaceful alternatives. Accessibly written and free of jargon, Disarming Manhood's exploration of human nature and maternal bonds will interest a wide audience as it furthers the understanding of human nature itself and contributes to the fields of developmental psychology and feminist scholarship.

Publisher Description

David A. J. Richards examines the lives of five famous male crusaders and political leaders who resisted violence if possible and presented their causes more humanely. Disarming Manhood argues that Winston Churchill, William Lloyd Garrison, Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Leo Tolstoy shared an alternative psychology, springing from the religious outlook of their mothers and other maternal figures, that enabled them to resist traditional male responses to challenges.

Author Biography

Richards lives in New York City and will appear at Book Expo America 2005, where the book will be unveiled. Richards is a widely published and respected author of academic/crossover books dealing with the law and social issues, such as gay rights and feminism.

Review

"David Richards brings a novelist's eye and a psychologist's questions to the lives of men who have notably challenged the linkages between manhood and violence. He traces the roots of their resistance to a close relationship with a loved mother or maternal caretaker, whose ethical voice they carry inside them. This is a book for all mothers of sons--for everyone invested in human survival."--Carol Gilligan, author of In a Different Voice
