Changing Men assembles some of the most innovative and exciting research on men and masculinity. As such, it contributes to the demarcation of the new field of men's studies and to the examination of masculinity within traditional academic disciplines. The contributors deal with broad topical and methodological issues such as reformulating the male role, men in domestic settings, male/female relationships, sexuality, race and gender, and future directions for men's studies.
