The remarkable political transition from apartheid to democracy disturbed the established gender order of South Africa. This book looks at the way in which men, under apartheid and in the transition period responded to, were affected by, and themselves contributed to the transitions in Southern Africa. Men in South Africa are still dominant in the domestic and public realm, but masculinities have shifted, and in many cases, become more inclusive. The book examines different forms of masculinity, highlighting the importance of race and class.
