Men's Lives

Tenth Edition

Edited by Michael Kimmel and Michael A. Messner

Now published by Oxford University Press--at a new, lower price--Men's Lives reflects on the question "What does it mean to be a man in contemporary U.S. society?" Edited by two of the field's most prominent researchers, and organized around themes that define masculinity, this best-selling reader uses a social-constructionist view to examine how men construct masculinity within a social and historical context.

New to this Edition:

  • Twenty-eight new articles
  • An expanded focus on gender-nonconforming children, transgender people, and "hybrid" masculinities
  • A broader examination of violence, including articles on rape, mass shootings, and internet-based gender violence
  • A new section "Politics of Masculinities" illuminating men's anti-feminist backlash and U.S. policies that target immigrant men in the age of Donald Trump
  • A new section "What Can Men Do?" focusing on men's actions as individuals--and as members of organizations--to end violence and to support equality in the U.S. and in the world
  • Now published by OUP at a new, lower price
