Churchill's Deception: The Dark Secret That Destroyed Nazi Germany

Louis C. Kilzer, Author Simon & Schuster $22.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-76722-8
To find out how American men define masculinity and whether they measure up to their own ideal, Kaufman, a photographer and UCLA graduate film student, crisscrossed the country, asking men to photograph themselves with the aid of a 30-foot-long shutter-release cord. His 76 subjects--among them a Hollywood entertainment lawyer, a L.A. gang member, a Massachusetts dairy farmer, a Texas cow-wrangler, a Brooklyn street vendor--each supplied an accompanying handwritten statement on what it means to be a man. Each subject also filled out a one-page questionnaire, also included here, furnishing his name, age, ethnicity, occupation, philosophical outlook and so forth. The result is a disarming, revealing exploration of men's ambivalence and confusion about being male. (June)
