With recent social trends and developments in health care policy, the health of men is high on the political agenda.

Men's Health: Perspectives, Diversity and Paradox examines and clarifies what is known about the socialisation of boys and men. The book shows how this influences the ways in which they maintain their health, how they respond to illness, and why they do or do not seek help. It also includes personal stories and poems by men. The text reviews research on health, gender and masculinity, and describes recent research on the health of men at work. The research forms the basis for exploring how national, regional and local strategies can be developed to improve men's health.

The book is intended for medical, nursing and social science students, and health service managers and professionals. It is relevant for academic departments of public health, social medicine, general practice, nursing, health sciences, women's studies, gender studies, public policy and administration, and sociology. It is also intended for those working in public health, community and mental health, primary health, and social services.
