The Masculinity Studies Reader brings together widely-read and -cited work by key theorists in a new context that is intended simultaneously to establish the contours of and to raise questions about masculinity as a field of academic inquiry.
"These essays are, individually, insightful and often arresting. Taken together, they are prismatic, illuminating this new interdisciplinary area of scholarly inquiry. With this collection, masculinity studies comes of age as an academic field." Michael Kimmel, SUNY at Stony Brook
"This anthology identifies the need in contemporary cultural studies for more elaborate understandings of the relations of various masculinities to power, nation, empire, violence, race, class, and embodiment. The editors must be commended for producing a volume which answers to this need and brings together an eclectic, multidisciplinary, and wide-ranging collection of essays in response. Bound to become required reading in gender studies and beyond!" University of California at San Diego
"The instructor-friendly anthology of 22 previously published essays dating primarily from 1970 to 2000, is destined to become a standard in courses on gender and masculinity. Rachel Adams and David Savran have chosen fascinating articles that will be both challenging and accessible to university students at all levels" Journal of Contemporary European Studies
"Adams and Savran provide extrcta from a number of key sources that lay the foundations for understanding masculinities through a cultural studies oriented approach" Sexualities
