Reviews

"... as the first project of its kind, European Perspectives on Men and Masculinities is an impressive achievement in its own right, and one hopes it will generate new research ...." - Christopher E. Forth, US, Men and Masculinities, 2008

"This book will be of interest to a variety of scholars, especially those whose working terrain is national and regional and who are looking for a decent overview of studies, research issues and methodological caveats. It is a sound accomplishment to have outlined the perspective that men's endurance and men's creation of social problems are commonly, be it in variable and complex ways, intertwined." - Diederik F. Janssen, The Netherlands, Journal of Men's Studies

"The book might become a convenient handbook for researchers, teachers and students - dealing with social problems, gender, work, new family types etc." - Niels Rosendal Jensen, Denmark, European Journal of Social Work
