What People are Saying About This

David S. Derezotes

Rich Furman is strong in his description of the historical and cultural contexts (e.g., concepts of masculinity, global perspectives) of men's issues and the assessment of men's issues in practice. His book challenges the current tendency in social work to devalue work with men and argues that although men obviously enjoy certain privileges, they also suffer from certain challenges.
