"In this compilation by 17 scholars chosen from around the world, the editors sought to have each author discuss and
analyze the latest advances in the study of manhood and masculinity in his or her country, specifically taking into
account the social, economic, and cultural contexts of the respective nations. The result is a wide-ranging,
comparative volume that provides the latest foci on masculinity from scholars in Europe, the Americas, the Asia
Pacific region, and Africa. However, providing the contributing authors the autonomy to identify what they perceive
as the latest foci means that the overall volume lacks a common theme, thus rendering any comparisons among
countries or regions in a particular area of scholarship rather difficult, if not impossible. Though this may be
frustrating for readers seeking to obtain a truly comparative perspective, the edited volume nonetheless provides a
global perspective and gives voice to some regions of the world that have been largely neglected or ignored in
masculinity studies. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students/faculty." - CHOICE, J. R. Mitrano, Central Connecticut
State University
"Finally a book on global masculinities! This wonderful volume brings together a surprising range of scholarship on masculinities from all continents of the world. Comprehensive, rich, and thoroughly textured, the collection critically assesses masculinities in comparative perspective while simultaneously contributing new and diverse insight to the development of gender equality globally. Necessary reading for all students and scholars of masculinities." - James W. Messerschmidt, author of Hegemonic Masculinities and Camouflaged Politics: Unmasking the Bush Dynasty and Its War Against Iraq
"This splendid collection of research and activism shows both the maturing of masculinities research as a field of knowledge, and the new realism and determination in men's work for gender justice. Every chapter has illuminating things to say, and both differences and links between global North and global South emerge clearly." - Raewyn Connell, author of Masculinities and Confronting Equality
"This wide-ranging volume offers fascinating insights into men and masculinities around the world. It deserves to be widely read." - Andrea Cornwall, professor of Anthropology and Development, School of Global Studies, University of Sussex
