"Offer[s] substantial articles on a wide range of relevant topics, individuals, creative works and characters, theories, and events that over centuries have shaped the notion of American masculinity and its implications for men and women . . . Long—perhaps too long—in coming, [this] informative encyclopedia demonstrate[s] the maturity of the men's movement and the interdisciplinary breadth of men's studies since these began to emerge three decades ago. [It] will provide information, help clarify the issues in play, and raise the consciousness of many not yet aware of the vitality of this small movement and its related academic discipline . . . [We] advise that reference collections in academic and large public libraries make [this] available to their users."
