"In this lively and engaging new book Jeff Hearn looks back over nearly 40 years in feminist-framed studies of men and masculinities and also forward to the futuristic scenarios through which gender power is currently evolving in 'transpatriarchal' contexts." (Terrell Carver, University of Bristol). How is globalization gendered? Why do many books on globalization fail to discuss gender relations? And why do many of those that do omit an explicit and developed analysis of men and gender relations? This is a book on men within gender relations, that is, men in the context of changing gender relations, with particular reference to global change, processes of transnationalization, and intersectionalities. It considers the implications of debates on globalization and transnationalization for analyzing men, and the implications of debates on men for gendering globalization and transnationalization. It is an essential read for students and researchers of gender and sexuality, intersectionality, and globalization across the social sciences.
Jeff Hearn is Research Professor of Gender Studies at Orebro University, Professor of Management and Organization at Hanken School of Economics, and Professor of Sociology at the University of Huddersfield. Read less
