Description : "This book breaks new ground and expands the discourse on masculinities. Connell is an energetic scholar whose eclectic internationalist, sociological, historical, and even psychoanalytic perspectives are important to hear. Probably no other scholar writing on masculinity has such a broad grasp."—Tim Beneke, author of Proving Manhood "Connell has provided a much needed nudge to current scholarship on masculinities by showing the way toward larger global theorization. The Men and the Boys is an outstanding work that will be very well received."—Michael A. Messner, University of Southern California "Bob Connell is arguably the most influential male social scientist writing about masculinities today. And this colection of essays shows him in top form. Connell is a most adept theorist who can synthesize micro and macro, structural and personal, individual bodies and the body social, and, even more ambitiously, the global and—literally!—the microbial. This is a truly important book."— Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America and The Gendered Society "Bob Connell is the most fertile, astute and influential analyst of the myriad and messy meanings of masculinities on the planet. The Men and the Boys boldly extends the scope, depth and power of the foundational work he laid in Masculinities to address the most urgent and difficult questions about global gender and injustice of our time. Dare I label it a heroic work?"—Judith Stacey, author of Brave New Families
