Men, Masculinities and Social Theory, Hardback Book

Men, Masculinities and Social Theory Hardback

Edited by Prof. Jeff Hearn, D. H. J. Morgan

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social Theory series


This volume presents a series of illustrative and critical perspectives upon the developing study of men and masculinities and its importance for sociological theory.

The contributions, by women and men from Britain and the United States, are organized around the unifying themes of Power and Domination; Sexuality; Identity and Perception.

Feminism has raised profound questions for the social sciences, for sociological theory and for the study of men.

The contributors to this volume discuss how such questions can be addressed.

They demonstrate the range of theoretical traditions that can be brought to bear on the study of men, and underline the importance of understanding 'masculinities' in the plural.

In a concluding section, three different views upon the controversy surrounding 'Men's Studies' are presented.
