Contents

If I was looking for my own personal crisis of masculinity as I thrust into my 40s, my recent reading matter would have provided plenty of prompts. Am I a 'Latte Dad' (tinyurl.com/lattepappa)? A 'Crappo' (see p.396)? Or a 'soushoku danshi'?

This latter identity (see tinyurl.com/danshi) is particularly interesting. Literally translated, 'grass-eating boys' are named for their lack of interest in sex and their preference for quieter, less competitive lives. Japan's 'herbivores' are apparently provoking a national debate about how the country's economic stagnation since the early 1990s has altered men's behaviour. 'Have men gotten weaker?', ask the talk shows.

Martin Seager and David Wilkins, introducing a special feature on p.404, might well argue that the position of 'male psychology' remains too weak. A series of articles consider this particular form of 'gender blindness' and its impact.
Male or female, academic or practitioner, experienced writer or novice, please do consider writing for us: see tinyurl.com/psychowrite.
