A Man's World?: Changing Men's Practices in a Globalized World
Bob Pease, Keith Pringle
Zed Books, 2001 - Social Science - 260 pages
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, 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.
