Iolaus: An Anthology of Friendship, Carpenter, Edward (Editor)
2 Carpenter, Edward (Editor) Iolaus: An Anthology of Friendship
U.S.A. Pagan Press 1982 0943742005 / 9780943742007 Reprint Good 12mo 
192 pages. Edward Carpenter (1844-1929) was an English socialist poet, philosopher and anthologist. He was renowned in his day as a poet, social reformer, and critic. He is chiefly remembered now as a pioneer advocate of sexual freedom. IOLAUS (eye-oh-LAY-us), a classic of homophile literature, surveys romantic friendship between males - in earliest and pagan times, classical antiquity, early Christian and mediaeval times, the Renaissance, and modern times. Carpenter draws upon 30 centuries of literary master-pieces, retrieving precious passages from the obscurity to which censorship and bowdlerism had relegated them. IOLAUS has now been out of print for over half a century, and copies are scarce. It is hoped that with this publication, a new generation of men will find inspiration in Carpenter's celebration of what he considered to be the human highest affinity: the "manly love of comrades". Creases and stains in the cover.

viii +135 indexed pages. In this book Ronald Conway presents a conciseand positive consumer guide to the art and craft of being masculine in an era of changing relationships between the sexes. The feminist movement, Conway believes, caught most Australian men with their metaphorical pants down. Here he offers a balancing primer for men's liberation. His line of advice steers between the opposite extremes of the macho march towards cardiac arrest or chinless resignation to the wiles of a dominant woman. Conway avoids partisan argument and concentrates on the practical aspects of masculinity. He discusses all the major areas of masculine development from physical fitness, peer-group pressures and intimate relationships through to career choice and defining a set of values Being Male is chiefly written for young men but also has a lot to say to their parents, mates, wives or girlfriends.

A parent who loves and values them and will help them become the best they can be. And where do fathers go for advice on being that kind of parent? Fathers, you say, not mothers? Now that's a tricky one. Not any more it's not. Finally, there is a practical parenting guide for men. Michael Grose has a track record in parenting books and now he has written the one Australian fathers have been waiting for, A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. At last, a book specifically written for men in the 21st century. He demolishes the myths (Children are not safe around men: Myth! Fathers need to forgive their own fathers before they can be good dads: Myth! Busy dads are bad dads: Myth!) and provides practical advice that's easy to understand and apply and covers everything dads need to know. Topics include: Getting discipline right; How to raise both daughters and sons effectively; How their birth order affects your kids and how you should deal with that; Getting involved in their sports; Fathering after divorce or separation; Getting through their adolescence; The role of grandads; and how to manage your busy schedule and still be a great dad. Men who can enjoy healthy relationships with their children are generally happier and lead fuller lives. They also become better leaders and managers both at work and within the community. - from A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. Michael Grose is a father of three and the author of successful parenting titles including Great Ideas for Tired Parents and One Step Ahead: Raising 3-12 Year Olds (Reed titles, both of which sold around 10,000) and the recent HarperCollins title Raising Happy Kids.

Men's health: every man's guide to good Health, Laws, Tom
14 Laws, Tom Men's health: every man's guide to good Health
Australia Elsevier 2008 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
95 pages including illustrations. lt is generally common knowledge that men are less likely to see their doctor than women. Sadly, this also means that men are less likely to have any health problems detected earlier rather than later, when it could be potentially too late. It is important that men of all ages see their doctor for health check-ups on a regular basis, and discuss ways to reduce health risks or change lifestyle behaviour that could have a negative impact on their health. lt is just as important to educate yourself on the sort of health risks that are relevant to you and what things to look out for. Tom Laws is a lecturer in the Division of Health Sciences at the University of S.A. Australia. He has researched for the Cancer Council, written international courses on menís health issues for medical graduates and has published several books for readers of menís health. Tom holds degrees in Economics, Education and Public Health, as well as being a midwife. He is currently investigating the health practices of men within dual income family, arguing that menís efforts to promote health within the family go largely unrecognised, yet they can be an important support for the working mother. In 2007, Tom has been guiding and assessing the new Nurse Practitioners in menís health for rural areas of Australia.

Passions of Fatherhood, Osherson
15 Osherson Passions of Fatherhood
Australia HarperCollins Publ 1996 0732256658 / 9780732256654 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
289 pages. Explores the most challenging and rewarding relationship in a man's life: fatherhood. The Passions of Fatherhood illuminates the joy and anger, excitement and frustration, discovery and bewilderment that fathers experience moment by moment as they struggle to raise their children in today's world. Osherson looks at fathering from the inside, using his own family life as a springboard into universal experience. As Osherson explains, fatherhood is not simply a role; it's an evolving, highly dynamic relationship that continuously and powerfully transforms men as their children grow up. Through revealing personal anecdotes and interviews with scores of other fathers, Osherson dramatizes the central dilemmas that all fathers face today. How does a father help his son find confidence and strength without pushing him too hard? When a father falls head over heels in love with his little girl, how can he also maintain clear and healthy boundaries? How can men keep the passions of fatherhood from stifling the sexual and emotional passions of marriage? How can men reconcile their desire to be present in their families with their need to get away?
