Debating Masculinity (edited by Josep M. Armengol and Angels Carabi) offers a contemporary discussion of men and masculinities from an interdisciplinary perspective, including interviews to, and chapters by, leading masculinity scholars such as Michael Kimmel (Sociology), Lynne Segal (Psychology), David Gilmore (Anthropology), Patricia Gowaty (Biology), Carolyn Dinshaw (Sexuality studies), David Eng (Race studies), Linda Jones (Arabic studies), Krin Gabbard (Film studies), and David Leverenz (Literary criticism). Combining a multiplicity of disciplinary and critical approaches, the book explores the past, present, and future of masculinity studies in highly innovative and provocative ways, analyzing the relationship between masculinity and such pressing questions as violence, fatherhood, feminism, men's movements, identity politics, intimacy and friendship, homophobia.
