Manthropology

Author: Peter McAllister
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
ISBN: 1429940840
Release Date: 2010-10-26
Genre: Social Science

Manthropology is the first of its kind. Spanning continents and centuries, it is an in-depth look into the history and science of manliness. From speed and strength, to beauty and sex appeal, to bravado and wit, it examines how man today compares to his masculine ancestors. Peter McAllister set out to rebut the claim that man today is suffering from feminization and emasculation. He planned to use his skills as a paleoanthropologist and journalist to write a book demonstrating unequivocally that man today is a triumph---the result of a hard-fought evolutionary struggle toward greatness. As you will see, he failed. In nearly every category of manliness, modern man turned out to be not just matched, but bested, by his ancestors. Stung, McAllister embarked on a new mission. If his book couldn't be a testament to modern male achievement, he decided, it would be a record of his failures. Manthropology, then, is a globe-spanning tour of the science of masculinity. It kicks off in Ice Age France, where a biomechanical analysis demonstrates that La Ferrassie 2, a Neanderthal woman discovered in the early 1900s, would cream 2004 World Arm Wrestling Federation champion Alexey Voyevoda in an arm wrestle. Then it moves on to medieval Serbia, showing how Slavic guslar poets (who were famously able to repeat a two thousand-line verse after just one hearing) would have destroyed Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, in a battle rap. Finally, it takes the reader to the steaming jungles of modern equatorial Africa, where Aka Pygmy men are such super-dads, they even grow breasts to suckle their children. Now, that's commitment. For modern man, the results of these investigations aren't always pretty. But in its look at the history of men, Manthropology is unfailingly smart, informative, surprising, and entertaining.

Suddenly, Boyd was confronted with the reality of what it would mean if her husband were actually to become a woman Ñ socially, legally, and medically.

Now, She's Not the Man I Married is both a sequel and a more expansive examination of gender in relationships. It's for couples who are homosexual or heterosexual, and for readers who fall anywhere along the gender continuum. As Boyd struggles to understand the nature of marriage, passion, and love, she shares her confusion and anger, providing a fascinating observation of the ways in which relationships are gendered, and how we cope, or don't, with the emotional and sexual pressures that gender roles can bring to our marriages and relationships.

In 2008, President Barack Obama gave a speech in Chicago, Illinois declaring that black men in America have abandoned the responsibility of fatherhood. At that moment I became inspired to write in response to the speech on the behalf of black fathers in this country. The more I researched and wrote I came to the conclusion that this is an American problem not an African-American issue. The details in this book are written in the form of an autobiography and memoir of my life. But in particular chapters I take the opportunity to offer a contributed solution to the baby daddy and baby mamma drama, discrimination, and homosexual relationships. I feel that if Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman had an applicable understanding of the contributed solution which is in the form of an equation in this book. The event at the night of the Trayvon murder would have not taken place and both individuals could have walked away in peace. In addition to the documentation and story in this book I have also included my three rap albums in which I have recorded throughout my life over the course of 10 years. Each album represents different stages of my life. The most current album is "The Resurrection" which is not completed as of August 2013 but will be available for download soon. I want to capture the emotion of my experiences as I am inspired and be able to share the recordings with my fans as soon as I am done. However, this brings a new excitement to the rap industry because I have a book that enables readers to download rap music at any given time. So all in reality my fans and supporters can take this journey of recording with me. So I offer my story, wisdom, and music.
