Men face common issues – the balance between work and family, fatherhood, defining masculinity in a globalizing economy, health and reproduction, sexuality, and violence. They are confronting these issues all over the world in very different contexts and are coming up with different priorities and strategies to address them. This new international series provides a vehicle for understanding the diversity, and reflects the growing awareness that analysis of masculinity will be greatly impoverished if it remains dominated by a European/North American/Australian matrix. A number of regional and thematic cross-cultural volumes are planned.
