"Cultures of Masculinity presents a survey of the social, cultural and theoretical issues which surround and inform our understanding of masculinity. Beginning with an analysis of the so-called 'crisis' of masculinity - in which men are repeatedly reported to be experiencing employment, health and educational failings - Tim Edwards considers the validity of the concerns and anxieties which surround masculinity in the contemporary world." "One of the most comprehensive and progressive studies of modern masculinity available, this book will be essential reading for students of gender, culture and sociology."--BOOK JACKET.
