Description

Chapter 5 engages in a genealogical study of male circumcision examining five circumcision events from the modern period to ancient Egypt. As with the previous chapters, this chapter shows how across cultures and time pain is a central component to the construction of masculinities; this time centred on the penis as the privileged sign-symbol of masculinity.
