Masculinities in the Making : From the Local to the Global Paperback / softback


In Masculinities in the Making, James W. Messerschmidt unravels the mysteries surrounding the question of how masculinities are actually "made." One of the most respected scholars on the subject of masculinities, Messerschmidt brings together three seemingly disparate groups-wimps, genderqueers, and U.S. presidents-to examine what insight each has to offer our understanding of masculinities.

The book is unique in its coverage, including a revised structured action theory; an intersectional analysis of sex, gender, and sexuality; and an examination of the differences among masculinities from the local to the global.

Messerschmidt provides a fresh, accessible, and provocative argument that significantly advances our knowledge on masculinities.
