"In a new introduction and afterword, Connell reviews more recent work and extends some of his thinking on the significance to masculinity of global economics, politics and culture."
Times Higher Education Supplement
From the Inside Flap
FROM THE PREVIOUS EDITION:
"Clearly written and sophisticated, this book presents Connell's ideas about males and the social phenomena that interact with gender."--Choice
"Connell's book is the fundamental study on masculinity as a formative factor on modern social inequality, and also of the most important books in the social sciences in recent years."--Journal for the Study of British Cultures
"A wonderful book; engagingly written, broadly researched, and politically useful. It is certainly one of the best of the recent, to use Connell's witty phrase, 'books about men.'"--Australian Journal of Political Science --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Example; "There is little evidence of even a weak biological determination of group differences in simple individual behaviours. And the evidence of cross-cultural and historical diversity in gender is overwhelming. For instance, there are cultures and historical situations where rape is absent, or extremely rare; where homosexual behaviour is majority practice (at a given point in the life cycle); where mothers do not predominate in child care (e.g., this work is done by old people, other children or servants); and where men are not normally aggressive."
What this agit-prop campaigner can't bring herself to say is that women usually look after children in very different cultures, that homosexuals are a minority and that there might be some obvious evolutionary/biological reasons for these facts - even if she doesn't like them.
The book in no way offers a balanced look at the interesting subject of maleness(or gender differences)and is just a psuedo-intellectual Marxist style diatribe of "victimhood" and guilt.
