About this book

This book examines whether we are witnessing the resilience, persistence and adaptation of masculinist discourses and practices at both domestic and international levels in the contemporary global context. Beginning with an innovative conceptualisation of masculinism, the book draws on interdisciplinary work to analyse its contours and practices across four case studies. From the anti-feminist backlash that can be found in various men’s rights movements, and responses to gender-based and sexual violence, to the masculinist underpinnings of human rights discourse, and modes of intervention to protect, including drone warfare. This interdisciplinary work will appeal to students and scholars of gender studies, security and international relations, and sociology.

Reviews

“In this dynamic, interdisciplinary, empirically rich and analytically provocative book, Nicholas and Agius bring attention to the global forces of masculinism that permeate all levels of politics. Surrounded as we are by a masculinized populism that continues to enable insecurity, violence, and oppression in contemporary global politics, this book demonstrates the depth and breadth of the lineages that facilitate, and have facilitated, these masculinist practices. Nicholas and Agius’s analysis shows how we might not only reveal, but politically grapple with, the forces of masculinism today.” (Brent J. Steele, University of Utah, USA, and author of Alternative Accountabilities in Global Politics: the Scars of Violence, 2013)

“Misogyny and aggrieved male entitlement are the threads that bind together surging far right movements in the United States and elsewhere. Agius’s and Nicholas’s painstaking elucidation of “masculinism” shows how reactionary movements systematically mobilize masculine resentment, and how that links up with broader structures of patriarchy, white supremacy, and colonialism. This book is essential not only for scholars working in this field, but for writers and journalists seeking to fully understand antifeminism as a political and ideological force.” (Jason Wilson, Columnist and Journalist at The Guardian)
