This book explores men's ambiguous relationship with intimate caring work within a context where carefree and nurturing expectations for men are competing for influence. For men, to be more involved carers clashes with commonly valued expectations of them as men and this book analyses how men confront this contradictory expectation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Hanlon has produced a comprehensive text on masculinity and caring and one that I would recommend to scholars across the social sciences. It was an engaging piece to read, one that was well thought out and presented." - Journal of Gender Studies

"This book could serve as a teaching tool in advanced gender studies courses because it provides a rare, in depth analysis of how men interpret their role in fathering, housework, and emotion work" - Sex Roles

"Feminist debate has long been derailed by the question, "But what about the men?". Hanlon's book answers this sensitively and comprehensively and lays the foundations on which we can start to build a model of affective equality." - Huffington Post

"This publication could be used as an excellent guide in developing policy and practice in men's caring contexts. Niall Hanlon made an excellent case for masculinities studies to take up 'care', and its contexts, as an important focus of study and debate." - Irish Journal of Sociology
