    This book surveys the relationship of hunting to social masculinity, considering time periods from the Paleolithic era, the Grecian, Roman, and Middle Ages, up to the present While the book slogs at times, there are many sections that are very interesting The author has spent time with numerous groups of hunters in an effort to understand the dynamics of each group, in what appears ultimately to be a personal quest for a better understanding of what it means to be male Groups that he joins f This book surveys the relationship of hunting to social masculinity, considering time periods from the Paleolithic era, the Grecian, Roman, and Middle Ages, up to the present While the book slogs at times, there are many sections that are very interesting The author has spent time with numerous groups of hunters in an effort to understand the dynamics of each group, in what appears ultimately to be a personal quest for a better understanding of what it means to be male Groups that he joins for hunts range the gamut of men that are seeking walrus or whale for living, to groups that are seeking the fun of chasing down a deer or fox for sport.Hunting as an endeavor is considered from many angles the act of acquiring food in remote areas, the formation of boys clubs e.g., the Boy Scouts , the sport of pursuing women, the social and sexual predation exhibited in modern times, andThe book also explores the various mythologies that come into play related to masculinity Mythology as such is not just the accounts of male pursuit and seduction, but also what occurs in the male when the tables are turned, and women goddesses such as Venus are the pursuers This upsets the dynamics of control, and Bergman looks at groupings of men as hunters as potential bondings of men to form protective strategies against women Interesting stuff indeed

    A painfully boring read, verbose, pycho babble filled, sideways look at hunting, from wooly mammoth hunting depicted in ancient cave art to today s Inuit whale hunters, as it pertains to the formation of masculinity identity by a man that has never hunted before and that after writing this book became a vegetarian In other words, I hated this book At one point Bergman tries to draw a parallel between psychopathic serial killers like Ted Bundy and the modern deer hunter If you re interested in A painfully boring read, verbose, pycho babble filled, sideways look at hunting, from wooly mammoth hunting depicted in ancient cave art to today s Inuit whale hunters, as it pertains to the formation of masculinity identity by a man that has never hunted before and that after writing this book became a vegetarian In other words, I hated this book At one point Bergman tries to draw a parallel between psychopathic serial killers like Ted Bundy and the modern deer hunter If you re interested in a philosophical look at hunting try Ortega y Gasset s Meditations on Hunting For a history of white tail deer hunting in North America, check out Robert Wegner

    There was lots of stuff I really liked about this book It is about a guy trying to understand man as the hunter He does this by going off with hunting parties and killing things He also does very interesting readings of myths Ovid, that sort of thing Once you strip away all the layers our fundamental belief is that man is the hunter and woman the gatherer It is fascinating to watch Bergman tilt this particular glass in his hands so we can see it from a vast number of perspectives.
