How are men reacting to contemporary social change? How are they responding to changes in women’s demands and women’s identities? And how are national and transnational politics and policies assisting, or not, in these key challenges? Using a broad comparative perspective, contributions from scholars in seventeen countries analyze the characteristics and potential of diverse educational and political initiatives towards progressive changes in gender relations.

Editorial Reviews

“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
