“Castration has been in the closet too long. In most Jungian libraries there’s not a single book on castration, and the Freudian ones are a generation old.”

The author wrote this in response to our hesitation in using the world in the title of this book. He is right. the topic is heavy with a sense of taboo, a taboo which has outlived its usefulness. Once again, as he did in Phallos: Sacred Image of the Masculine, Monick reclaims areas of masculine psychology from the darkness of denial.

Both scholarly and lyric this book examines the strengths and weaknesses of the psychological structures of masculinity. Combining Freudian theory with Jung’s views, it maps the powers which from early life fuel men’s rage and fears of castration, and suggests antidotes.

This is no painless task, for either the author or the reader, but the rewards for both men and women are recognition and celebration of the indestructible essence of masculinity.
