About this book

Exploring how men in service and caring occupations (cabin crew, primary school teachers, nurses and librarians) both 'do' and 'undo' gender as they manage the potential mismatch between gender and occupational identity, this book engages with the key theoretical concepts of identity, visibility and emotions to examine men's experiences.

Reviews

'This is a very welcome book on the field of occupational choice. It is well signposted and written for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as a non-academic audience. I have already ordered library copies and included it as a "must-read" addition to reading lists on gender and occupational choice.' - Sue Child, Times Higher Education
