Questions about men and boys have aroused remarkable media attention and public interest in recent years. Bob Connell is arguably the most influential male social scientist writing about masculinities today. And this colection of essays shows him in top form. This is a truly important book. - Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America and The Gendered Society.
Questions about men and boys have aroused remarkable media attention and public interest in recent years.
Bob Connell is the most fertile, astute and influential analyst of the myriad and messy meanings of masculinities on the planet. The Men and the Boys boldly extends the scope, depth and power of the foundational work he laid in Masculinities to address the most urgent and difficult questions about global gender and injustice of our time. Dare I label it a heroic work?"-Judith Stacey, author of Brave New Families. This book breaks new ground and expands the discourse on masculinities. Connell is an energetic scholar whose eclectic internationalist, sociological, historical, and even psychoanalytic perspectives are important to hear. Probably no other scholar writing on masculinity has such a broad grasp. -Tim Beneke, author of "Proving Manhood. Connell has provided a much needed nudge to current scholarship on masculinities by showing the way toward larger global theorization.

Interviewing boys, teachers and parents, we could see active hierarchies of masculinity in school settings. The term ‘hegemonic masculinity’ was first used in a 1982 report from this project, and my first essay on men and masculinities was published in the same year. I managed to get funding for a study of social theories of gender. I had been reluctant to write such a book, as I thought the genre of ‘Books About Men’ – astonishingly popular in the early 1990s – fostered the illusion of one fixed natural masculinity. When I did start writing, the draft was promptly rejected by a well-known US publisher. Other publishers kindly launched the book in 1995, and it seemed to meet a need.

Thursday, July 7, 2011. Connell – "Masculinities": Science of masculinity - summary. In chapter one of her book Masculinities titled "science of masculinity" . Connell notes that one of the interesting products of the gay liberation movement and the discussion of homophobia was the blurring of the distinction between the men/women polarization and the homosexual/straight polarization. In this respect it is interesting to see the onward attacks on gender conventions, such as drag, which formed the queer style.
