I recently learned of an interesting new publication, New Male Studies http://newmalestudies.com. The Editor is a psychology professor based in New York, Dr Miles Groth. He’s also a philosopher. More details about this estimable gentleman on http://www.wagner.edu/departments/psychology/groth.
I recently contacted Dr Groth to congratulate him on the launch of New Male Studies and sent him a copy of The Glass Ceiling Delusion. He’s informed me that he’s going to review the book for New Male Studies and suggested I submit an article relating to the book’s content for publication in the next issue, which I shall do. He’s also going to review Feminism: The Ugly Truth. He invited me to join the Board of Advisers, which I’ve accepted, although I’ll be one of the very few non-academics on the Board (almost all of the Board members are professors). It’s very encouraging to see a group of leading academics critique gender-related issues other than from an ideological feminist standpoint. I wish NMS every success, and I shall do what I can to support it.
The following is drawn from the New Male Studies website:
New Male Studies: An International Journal (NMS) is an open access online inter-disciplinary journal for research and discussion of issues facing boys and men worldwide. In response to a now well-documented decline in the overall well-being of males in postmodern culture, a group of Australian, Canadian, European and American scholars have gathered together to publish research, essays, opinion pieces, and book reviews on all aspects of the male experience.
