Pressestimmen

"Amanda Lotz impressively maps out important features of television's representations of men and shifting masculinities in the 21st century. Her careful analyses of these series makes this book an essential resource for anyone interested in television, gender, and culture."-Ron Becker, author of "Gay TV & Straight America"

"Cable Guys is a remarkable book that will transform the way we think about both television and constructions of masculinity. This clear, well-written, and deeply engaged book refuses to generalize about masculinity and instead reveals the complexity of straight, white men on television. Covering a wide range of programs, from cable to broadcast television, Amanda Lotz offers us an indispensable resource for the fields of media studies, television studies and gender studies."-Sarah Banet-Weiser, author of "Authentic ""

"Lotz (communication studies, Univ. of Michigan; Redesigning Women: Television After the Network Era) here explores how cable television is dramatizing contemporary American male masculinity. The author identifies and focuses on three narrative types: serials that emphasize the development of of a central male protagonist (e.g., Breaking Bad; Dexter), shows set in male enclaves (e.g., Rescue Me; Entourage), and stories featuring intimate male friendships (e.g., Boston Legal; Nip/Tuck). Lotz argues that these dramas depict straight, largely white men wrestling with what it means to be manly in today's post-second-wave feminism and in the context of rising queer visibility. She concludes that the shows' characters all struggle to combine old and new modes of manhood....Lotz offers a concise and insightful analysis of the productions she does examine. Verdict Scholars will value Lotz's contribution to media and masculinity studies, as will more casual viewers who enjoy watching cable television with a critical eye."-"Library Journal", Anna J. Clutterbuck-Cook, Massachusetts Historical Soc. Lib., Boston

"Lotz explores modern visions of masculinity following third wave feminism and epitomized in the rhetoric of male protagonists in cable programming. Mostly eschewing networks depictions of problematized males, Lotz zeroes in on straight male one-on-one friendships, what she calls the homosocial enclave of the male group, and a genre that particularly challenges male characters, the emerging male centered-serials. -"Choice""

"Cable Guys is an incredible work that should further cement Lotz's place as a considerate yet comprehensive expert on media and gender studies. Her writing . . . oozes confidence, knowledge, and reflection for her themes and televised tales."-"PopMatters

"Cable Guysis essential reading for students and scholars working in television studies and in the gendered politics of representation. The book is clear enough to be accessible to anundergraduate audience, while it is also sufficiently subtle and illuminating to be satisfying to more advanced students and scholars. "-"International Journal of Communication," Katherine Sender"

Rather than simply assuming a black and white dichotomy between hegemonic masculinity and feminized men, Lotz looks at these shows from a different angle that reveals the complexity of gender negotiation for men. [ ] Lotz s analysis provides a fresh look not only at the changes in television entertainment but also at the way that these changes have altered popular conceptions of manhood. -"Journal of American Culture""

Lotz offers an in depth analysis of the media and its effects on modern day concepts and understandings of masculinity. I would recommend this book to anyone who is studying or curious about gender and media, specific to men. I was assigned this book as part of a third level college course that helped open up discussions. Its also an easy read.
