Languages of publication
Dagmara Rode's book review of Ewa Mazierska's Masculinities in Polish, Czech and Slovak Cinema: Black Peters and Men of Marble (2008). In her book Mazierska offers a well argued reading of chosen aspects of Polish, Czech, and Slovak films, pointing out the changes in representations of masculinity that took place due to political, economic and social transformations. The book is addressed to an English speaking audience, who will find in this volume a number of interesting details and arguments dealing with contexts and films they might not be particularly familiar with. However Polish readers will also find this book useful, as it deals with a topic neglected in Polish film studies, namely masculinity and its representations.
