9780205096411: Men's Lives (9th Edition)

Understanding the experiences of men in U.S. society

 

Edited by two of the field’s most prominent researchers, Men’s Lives, 9th edition, reflects on the question “What does it mean to be a man in contemporary U.S. society?”

 

Organized around themes that define masculinity, this reader uses a social-constructionist view to examine how men construct masculinity within a social and historical context.

 

Learning Goals

  • Understand how different groups—working class men, men of color, gay men, older men, younger men, and boys—construct different versions of masculinity
  • Examine the social roles of both men and women and the different forms that gender inequality can take
  • Consider gender relations and how men and women relate to each other
  • Understand how recent research by feminist scholars and pro-feminist men links to social change activism
