Reviews

"As the title, Alternative Masculinities for a Changing World, indicates: this is fundamentally a political book. It also makes a major scholarly contribution in engaging very seriously across the social science-humanities boundary, and between social scientists and literary, cultural, and humanities scholars. Such boundary-crossing brings new angles and elements of uncertainty, unsettling, and surprise into the analysis and the politics around men and masculinities, and this is what is needed for change." - Jeff Hearn, Professor, Örebro University, Sweden; Hanken School of Economics, Finland; University of Huddersfield, UK

"Finding new ways for men to live, creating more gender-equal masculinities, is an urgent task for all concerned with gender justice and indeed human survival. Alternative Masculinities for a Changing World engages both social science and creative literature in this exploration. It's a bold and imaginative project, and the book gives readers a varied and hopeful view of what's possible for modern gender relations and the lives of men." - Raewyn Connell, University Chair of Education and Social Work, The University of Sydney, Australia

"In this rich anthology Carabí and Armengol draw together some remarkably wide-ranging reflections on the pitfalls of shifting masculinities in the contemporary global arena. There has never been more need for the sort of cross-cultural dialogue on the possibilities for expanding the life-enhancing, alternative masculinities explored so well in this invaluable collection." - Lynne Segal, Anniversary Professor of Psychology and Gender Studies, University of London, UK, and author of Out of Time: The Pleasures & Perils of Ageing
