From the Back Cover:

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. The authors explore how working class men, men of color, gay men, older men, younger men, and boys construct different versions of masculinity.

The sixth edition includes 18 new readings, on topics like: making a name for yourself growing up as a “bad boy”; college men and drinking; contemporary conceptions of “macho”; male workers in a feminized occupation (clerical workers); “girl-watching” in the workplace; sex tourism; masculinities and globalization.
