About this book

This book gives insights on youth, masculinity and place by exploring spatially marginalized masculinities in stigmatized and romanticized out-of-the-way places in 'developed' Western countries. It shows the impact of globalization on place and identity through global ethnographic studies and media representations of young men in peripheral places.

Reviews

'There is growing interest in how men and boys respond to the vast changes in contemporary society, and how masculinities are shaped and re-shaped under globalization. Masculinity Beyond the Metropolis is a distinguished contribution to our understanding of these issues. It is also a vivid piece of field research, exploring the lives of men and youth far from the centres of global power and wealth. This book is important for all who wish to understand contemporary masculinities and the process of globalization itself.' - Raewyn (RW) Connell, University of Sydney, Australia

'This book does...provide an interesting introduction to rural masculinity and is a useful companion to the transition and globalization literature and as such it is of interest to researchers and students in these areas.' - Katya Williams, Gender and Education
