Masculinity, Power and Technology: A Malaysian Ethnography
An innovative study is based on research gleaned from hanging around workshops, families and friends of mechanics from the Chinese Diaspora in Penang. Mellstrom argues that because of the positive connotations attached to technology in modern Malaysian society, it is a source of individual and national empowerment. He links this to the role that technology plays in becoming a man and taking on necessary male attributes to play one's part in a masculine culture. 184 pages.
