Edited by two of the field's most prominent researchers, this best-selling reader on men and masculinity contains the most current articles available.

Organized around themes that define masculinity, this reader takes a life-course perspective, using the idea that men (as well as women) are “gendered” and that this gendering process is a central experience for men.


An anthology of essays organized around specific themes and issues such as men in families, from boys to men, rites of passage in male institutions, work, health, and sexuality. Utilizes a social- constructionist perspective and examines variations that exist among men in relation to class, race, and sexuality. Topics include mythopoetic men's work, rape and violence, stereotypes of black male sexuality, and gays in the military. Lacks an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
