About This Project

Men and Masculinities is one of the most comprehensive texts ever published on the sociology of masculinity. Wide–ranging and accessible, it considers all the key themes, concepts and writings informing this increasingly important area of study.

Starting with discussion of the nature/nurture debate, Freudian and Jungian perspectives, and first–wave writings on men and masculinity, Men and Masculinities explores the work of key feminist and profeminist theorists such as Bob Connell, Jeff Hearn, Michael Kimmel, Michael Messner, Peter Nardi and Lynne Segal.
