MEN: Physically powerful, emotionally vulnerable, mentally mysterious. Or just randy, pushy, hairy,, flat-chested women who can't have babies... at least not yet?

IMAGING LIFE WITHOUT MEN No more troublesome dating and mating, quarrels over the remote control, beery breath, leery looks or Friday-night football. Maybe no war; certainly much less violence and crime. So why are men invented in the first place? What makes a boy a boy? Why are men so fascinated by sex? And are men and women really that different?

From the primal stirrings of the earliest cave men to the hype about Viagra, Bob Beale takes us on a Cook's tour of the state of maleness. Drawing widely from biology, genetics, anthropology and psychology, he sheds light on the stories behind the headlines:

*is there really a global decline in men's sperm counts?
*do women 'select' men who are duds, not studs?
*will cloning make men redundant in the 21st century?
*why do gentlemen often prefer blondes?
*why do boys tend to ijjore their mothers, and men retreat to their dens?

Providing a much-needed reality check for the growing debate about men and their place in society as fathers, lovers, husbands and sons, Bob Beale helps to make sense of the extraordinary male of the species - from before the sTone Age to beyond the Clone Age.
