Six bullets in only one hole
New updated and expanded edition of the classic book on the association between violence and masculinity. João Silvério Trevisan proposes overcoming the stereotypes imposed by the “ideal masculinity”, a chimera whose main victim is, in the final analysis, the man himself. One of the author’s central ideas is that male violence present in all cultures since the beginning of human history is a defensive movement in the face of the fragility of his phallus. The argument goes beyond the association between virility and violence. The cover explores this idea of pathetic virility by reproducing in a chaotic way the cowboy puppets pointing guns in the air.
