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.
