The Bear Book II: Further Readings in the History and Evolution of a Gay Male Subculture by John Dececco PhD & Les Wright

Here is a serious discussion of an emerging gay subculture!

Take another fascinating journey into the bear's den with the latest offering from Les Wright, author of The Bear Book. The Bear Book II will show you the contrast between the media image of the fun-loving, carefree bear man and the health, image, psychological, technological, and sexual concerns of bears living in the real world.

A continuation of The Bear Book (1997), this study of typically big, hairy, and bearded gay men explores bears on a societal and personal level, giving a wide voice to bears of all ages, nationalities, and cultures.

Among the topics The Bear Book II: Further Readings in the History and Evolution of a Gay Male Subculture discusses are:

  • health concerns of bears
  • bear body images
  • self-esteem issues for bears
  • physical and psychological bear attributes as portrayed in the media versus actual individual accounts
  • social and sexual institutions in the bear community
  • the role of the Internet in creating a global bear subculture
The Bear Book II will help you to understand the life of a bear. This unique book, the only serious exploration of this topic, offers documentation of a subculture in the making, complete with subjective and analytical perspectives that support this example of postmodern cultural anthropology.
