Taking as his central argument that relations between males in western society are deeply coloured with (if not actually determined by) envy, Mervyn Nicholson ranges across disciplines and eras in an analysis of this "taboo" subject. This book presents a series of motifs that are associated with male envy, locating each in a particular historical context and illustrating it with examples drawn from literature, film and popular culture.
