Review:

“For those interested in the latest work on African masculinities, this is the book. Well edited and organized, the essays are filled with historical detail and are carefully nuanced. Context is always fundamental for historians, of course, and these essays are no exception. In the afterword, Luise White throws up her hands, despairs of generalization, and writes of the "sanctioned untidiness to masculinity in Africa." Indeed, the book includes her brilliant early essay on the complexity of gender relations amongst the Mau Mau, which is unique and remains a model for us all....What is truly fascinating about the cases in this book is that they demonstrate the men's gendered identities change over time in contexts of conflict and collaboration and in relation to larger historical developments.”–Men and Masculinities
