MEDIA REVIEWS
"Offer[s] substantial articles on a wide range of relevant topics, individuals, creative works and characters, theories, and events that over centuries have shaped the notion of American masculinity and its implications for men and women . . . Long-perhaps too long-in coming, [this] informative encyclopedia demonstrate[s] the maturity of the men's movement and the interdisciplinary breadth of men's studies since these began to emerge three decades ago. [It] will provide information, help clarify the issues in play, and raise the consciousness of many not yet aware of the vitality of this small movement and its related academic discipline . . . [We] advise that reference collections in academic and large public libraries make [this] available to their users." - Booklist
"[T]he editors of this two-volume work . . . take a refreshingly practical approach to organizing its material . . . valuable expansion on the available reference literature on gender issues and men as participants in gender dynamics. This work is most suitable for the reference collections of large public, college, and university libraries." - American Reference Books Annual
"Kimmel and Aronson have compiled a comprehensive and authoritative encyclopedia that will find a niche in male studies. No previous encyclopedia has specifically addressed the study of men and masculinities . . . Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and higher." - Choice
"Recommended for reference collections in academic and public libraries." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
"[A] work involving editors and many contributors with distinguished research and publishing records in the field of gender studies . . . Readers interested in learning more about current research trends and theoretical perspectives in an important new field of gender studies will unquestionably benefit from browsing through Men and Masculinities." - C&RL News
