In Men and the Language of Emotions, Dariusz Galasinski challenges the commonly held association of rationality with masculinity, involving distancing from the language of emotions. Drawing on a major study of heterosexual men talking about their life and relationships, he demonstrates that men are capable of speaking of emotions and can do so in direct and uninhibited ways. He also discusses the crucial role of emotionality in constructions of masculine identities - those of men, fathers or husbands. The book ends with a proposal for a radically contextual understanding of gender and gender identities.
