Synopsis

Much work has been produced in recent years regarding critical studies of men`s practices utilizing various feminist and pro-feminist perspectives. This book widens what has hitherto been a dialogue primarily within the Western democracies. The editors have brought together a number of established and new scholars to provide a broader critical analysis of men`s practices across a wide range of socio-cultural settings. Particular attention is given to the fact that most studies of globalization and transnational social policy have tended not to encompass issues of men`s practices at all.



Issues covered within this volume include: men as carers of children or other adults; men as professional welfare workers; men`s health, crime and sexual violence; and men`s practices in organizations. Several contributions explore the complex transnational intersections and interactions occurring in the way men`s practices are developing across the globe. In addition to this comparative analysis, a wide and carefully selected range of national studies are included from Europe, the Americas, and Asia, as well as Australia and South Africa.



A Man`s World? will be invaluable reading for academics and students of sociology, gender studies, comparative social policy, social and community work, and development studies.
