In the past twenty years there has been a growing interest in the
issues surrounding men and masculinity. Driven primarily by the
second-wave feminist critique of the legitimacy or hegemony of
masculine practice and culture, the hegemony of men in social
spheres such as the family, law, and the workplace can no longer be
taken for granted. Beginning with the work of Antonio Gramsci and a
focus on developing the full complexity of his theory of hegemony,
Howson's fascinating new book then moves on through theory,
applications and analysis of various topical issues, discussing and
extending the work of R.W. Connell, and drawing out new
possibilities for social justice in gender. Over the course of
several informative chapters, the book considers: * a tripartite
model of hegemony * hegemony in the theory of practice *
application of hegemony to gender * the study of masculinity and
family law * radical pluralism * radical organic protest in gender.
Presenting a detailed examination of hegemonic masculinity and its
interpretations, this significant new book provides an important
contribution to contemporary understandings of men and masculinity.
