About this book

This study provides new insights into the link between masculinity and jealousy through a study of representations of male jealousy in modern Hollywood cinema. It argues, through examples of films and their reception in the press, that male jealousy has played a key role in the psychocultural shaping of Western masculinities and male fantasy.
