Summary/Abstract: Michael S. Kimmel’s article attemps to rectify the deficiencies he perceives in the sex-role paradigm by the analysis of a period (the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century) during which a "crisis of masculinity" was discerned by contemporaries. He differentiates between three types of male reactions to social changes: antifeminist backlash, promale backlash, and profeminist men.
