Review:

"I have taught this subject area for several years and have alwaysbeen frustrated by the lack a text that would give students anunderstanding of the basic, but difficult for undergraduates tograsp, concepts of the field of masculinities. What happens is thatthe materials available tend to fall back on simplistic genderresearch that has ‘pop’ attraction, but doesn't reallyexpand the student's critical capacities. The style ofpresentation, the assumption of student's need for non-abstractlanguage, illustrations and analogies present in this book shows anacute concern for and understanding of the student's prospect oflearning here."
George Muedeking, California State University,Stanislaus

"This is the book that I’ve been waiting for someone towrite! Kahn integrates theory and research from the social sciencesinto a coherent account of the diverse meanings of‘masculinities'. Most books on men’s studies are eitherhighly focused on a particular analytic framework, or provide broadsurveys with little theoretical depth. Kahn identifies the majorparadigms through which masculinities can be conceptualized. As aresult, readers will gain a 'meta' awareness of how men’slives are being constructed and analyzed, both by professionals andlay people in everyday life. This book is truly anaccomplishment."
Michael Addis, Clark University

"An Introduction to Masculinities is a comprehensiveoverview of a wide range of perspectives on masculinities. Itprovides students with an excellent road map to guide them throughimportant theories and issues in a complex field."
 –Dr. Harry Brod, Professor of Philosophy andHumanities, Department of Philosophy and World Religions,University of Northern Iowa

"I have just finished reading Dr. Kahn's new book AnIntroduction to Masculinities and am extremely impressed by thequality of the work. A high quality introductory text onmasculinity is much needed and long overdue. The many importantconcepts to which the student is introduced are clearly explainedin a writing style that is both engaging and personal. This is thebook we have been waiting for."
Ellyn Kaschak, Professor of Psychology, Author ofEngendered Lives and Editor, Journal of Women andTherapy

"Dr Kahn has written a clear, wide-ranging and thoughtfulintroduction to contemporary issues and research aboutmasculinities. Students and teachers will find this a valuableguide to complex and important problems."
Raewyn Connell, University of Sydney, Author ofMasculinities

''I am grateful to Jack Kahn for this careful, compendious,well-researched yet reader-friendly book. As a teacher, Kahn isskilled at explaining complex gender ideas and connecting them withour daily experiences and feelings. All students will find a lot tointerest them here."
Peggy McIntosh, Ph.D., Associate Director, WellesleyCenters for Women, Wellesley College

"Kahn makes a unique and valuable contribution to the fields ofmasculinities and gender studies. Speaking to students with amasterful blend of personal and academic writing, he makes thesocial and psychological complexities of these issues accessible inan introductory text."
Dr. Steven Botkin, Executive Director, Men'sResources International
