Pressestimmen

"In a new introduction and afterword, Connell reviews more recent work and extends some of his thinking on the significance to masculinity of global economics, politics and culture." Times Higher Education Supplement -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

This is an exciting new edition of R. W. Connell's ground-breaking text, which has become a classic work on the nature and construction of masculine identity. Connell argues that there is not one masculinity, but many different masculinities, each associated with different positions of power. In a world gender order that continues to privilege men over women, but also raises difficult issues for men and boys, his account is more pertinent than ever before. In a substantial new introduction and conclusion, Connell discusses the development of masculinity studies in the ten years since the book's initial publication. He explores global gender relations, new theories, and practical uses of mascunlinity research. Looking to the future, his new concluding chapter addresses the politics of masculinities, and the implications of masculinity research for understanding current world issues. Against the backdrop of an increasingly divided world, dominated by neo-conservative politics, Connell's account highlights a series of compelling questions about the future of human society.

This second edition of Connell's classic book will be essential reading for students taking courses on masculinities and gender studies, and will be of interest to students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Brilliant views on thinking about men and masculinities! 3. März 2008
Von Ta-Wei Wang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a must-have for all students of men's studies--in fact, for all gender related--courses. The book is truly interdisciplinary. Dr. Raewyn Connell is a leading sociologist from Australia. She combines her past academic efforts in education, political science, and feminism and over two decades of ethnographic studies on men and masculinities to develop her theory for understanding masculinities. Her "hegemonic masculinity" concept is widely cited, critiqued, and reformulated across academic disciplines. However those with little background in sociology and feminism might find it a little bit difficult to read. Among many fundamental texts on the studies of men and masculinities, this one belongs to the "sociology" camp, rather than the "psychology" camp. Though I come from psychology background, I found the points in this book very refreshing, stimulating, and challenging. Though the original edition was published in 1995 and Connell made little changes in the revised edition (she only added a new overview chapter and an epilogue), many ideas in the book still hold true today. This is not a happy thing to celebrate, because that means a certain group of men with socio-political power are still dominant and "hegemonic" in the society (with the "help" of "complicit" men) over the "marginalized" and "subordinated" groups of men, and women too. The book is a pioneer in advocating the plural forms of masculinities/sexualities/gender identities, which is a common acceptance in gender studies field now. I have attended a 3-day workshop on masculinities by Dr. Connell in 2006 in Taiwan. I was very impressed by her wide knowledge and enthusiasm on this topic. I don't agree with another reviewer that Connell only talked about limited aspects of masculinity in one country in this book. In fact, Connell offers several qualitative studies with wide range of men across different occupations, race, and social economic status, for example, unemployed youths, environmental activists, former athletes...etc. Her more recent studies even examine the interplay between globalization and masculinities (especially in the top multi-nation companies) and can be found in academic journals. Overall, this book is a classic and worth reading again and again. It's very useful for me in thinking about gender relations, social issues and conducting qualitative studies with men. I highly recommend it!!

Thanks, I needed this book 9. Juli 2014
Von William T. Hathaway - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It was a great help to me in understanding and overcoming the murderous masculinity I was indoctrinated with in the Green Berets, a bizarrely gendered world full of sexualized violence. Connell makes it clear that the military is just an extreme example of a pathology that permeates our culture. She dissects patriarchal capitalism with writing that is both passionate and scholarly, always centered in that revolutionary point where the personal and the social converge. I recommend the book highly.

Basic reading 28. Oktober 2013
Von Laura Tomàs Avellana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a basic reading if one is interested in gender theories as a whole, and it gives you some deep understanding on the concept of masculinity and what to understand by it.

I baught this in hopes of receiving a usable theory of masculinity and left it no better off. 10. Mai 2013
Von Alex Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I thought this was going to really lay masculinity out and provide a nice framework for its analysis but I was frankly disappointed. his ultimate definition of masculinity is all but indecipherable. take home point: masculinity is complicated and this book wont necessarily simplify it for you.
