Bringing together an array of interdisciplinary voices, Global Masculinities and Manhood examines the concept of masculinity from the perspectives of cultures around the world. Contributors to this volume deconstruct the history and politics of masculinities within the contexts of the cultures from which they have been developed, examining what makes a man who he is within his own culture. Highlighting manifestations of masculinity in countries including Jamaica, Turkey, Peru, Kenya, Australia, and China, scholars from a variety of disciplines grapple with topics including how masculinity is affected by war and conflict, defined in relation to race, ethnicity, and sexuality, and expressed in cultural activities such as sports or the cinema. Contributors are Bryant Keith Alexander, Molefi K. Asante, Murali Balaji, Maurice Hall, Ronald L. Jackson II, Shino Konishi, Nil Mutluer, Mich Nyawalo, Kathleen Glenister Roberts, Margarita Saona, and Kath Woodward.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A fine collection of original essays, each of which illustrates how dominant conceptualization of masculinity can inform and/or harm the everyday lives of particular populations. . . . Recommended."--Choice
"This accessible collection interrogates the cultural constructions of masculinity across a wide range of cultures. Focusing on cultures that are typically overlooked in discussions on masculinity, the contributors raise important issues and highlight the many tensions that create and construct masculinities worldwide."--Thomas K. Nakayama, coeditor of The Handbook of Critical Intercultural Communication
"This stimulating collection provides a succinct and consolidated examination of global cultures of masculinity and the basis for future comparative research and teaching in this area. A solid compliment to the existing and growing literature in the field of masculinity studies."--Corey D. B. Walker, author of A Noble Fight: African American Freemasonry and the Struggle for Democracy in America
