    Book synopsis: Male Trouble explores how Western masculinity has increasingly appeared as a troubled gender category in recent times. Cross-disciplinary in scope, the book focuses on a variety of performative case studies in drama, theatre, live art, guerilla performance, public spectacle, and film. Moreover, the study analyses work that dialogues with discourses of masculinity in crisis principally drawn from American, British, and Irish contexts to challenge the sacrificial terms by which male trouble is typically articulated, while ultimately arguing for an ethic of fragilization in order to move beyond this deadlock in subjectivity and relationality.
