About This Project

The Masculinities Reader provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the key debates informing the study of masculinity. The book opens with a substantive introductory chapter that looks at masculinity in crisis, post–feminism, men′s power, changing men, nature/nurture debates and concepts of identity. Recognizing the global dimensions of gender change, the book draws on research from many corners of the world.

The Masculinities Reader is an essential text for students and researchers concerned with exploring men and masculinities. In providing a unique overview of an increasingly important field of sociological enquiry, this book will be an invaluable addition to students and academics in sociology, gender studies, cultural studies, and a range of other disciplines.
