About the Author

Martin Hultman is widely published in energy, climate and environmental issues, including Discourses of Global Climate Change (2014). He works with grass-roots transitions, rights of nature and global strategies for ending ecocide. Current research projects include gender and energy history, ecopreneurship in circular economies and climate change denialism. Paul M Pule is an Australian scholar and activist specialising in men, masculinities and their impacts on others and self. His research and community education efforts are dedicated to creating a healthier planet for all. Paul continues to work with Martin on conceptual and practical approaches to men and Earth.


"Taking us on an unconventional journey, Martin Hultman and Paul Pule untangle what it means to be a man in the western world today. They explore and rethink new expressions of manhood and masculinities towards relational and caring masculinities in service of the global commons. This book is an essential read, especially for men, but also for all those who care about our intertwined futures." - Seema Arora-Jonsson, author of Gender, Development and Environmental Governance (2013) and Associate Professor of Urban and Rural Development, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala "Colonialism, war 'games', rape culture, child sex trafficking, industrial animal agriculture, mass shootings, domestic and public ecoterrorism: throughout recorded history, hegemonic masculinity has been socially constructed and widely accepted for displaying behaviors that wreck the planet, tear apart families, AND oppress women, non-binary/genderqueer people and people of color. But the green tendrils of feminist ecomasculinities have persisted, and their re-emergence here signals real possibilities for transforming the global terrorist triumvirate of climate change, colonialism and corporate hegemony." - Greta Gaard, ecofeminist scholar, activist, filmmaker, author of Critical Ecofeminism (2017) and Professor of English at University of Wisconsin-River Falls, USA "Ecological Masculinities comes at a pertinent point in our history, expressing humanities' meditative moment of reflection on 'what has been' into 'what is' as we move beyond gender in our search for true wisdom. Paul and Martin express their masculine embodiment with a fresh critical reflection on deep ecology by toning their feminine expressions of who they are becoming through this mammoth book. I sincerely hope it will awaken a deeper dialogue towards understanding the profound wisdom hidden within Professor Arne Naess's work. Stay close all!" - Pamela Hiley, British Qigong master living in Oslo, Norway, and a personal friend of Arne Naess's "Men are the unmarked category and final frontier of gender and environment scholarship. Studies of how hegemonic masculinities are connected with-and drivers of-varied forms of ecological destruction are sorely lacking. We don't fully understand why this lack persists or how it should be redressed. However, ecological masculinities brings us one giant step toward answering these and many other important questions about men/masculinities and their complex relationships to the world. This book is a conversation starter that is both compellingly presented and desperately needed." - Sherilyn MacGregor, Reader in Environmental Politics, University of Manchester, UK and editor of The Routledge Handbook on Gender and Environment (2017) "This is a ground-breaking and very welcome book that takes both environmental studies and critical masculinities studies to a new level. Drawing upon four diverse streams of theory: masculinities politics, deep ecology, ecological feminism and feminist care theory, Martin Hultman and Paul Pule examine the human and planetary costs of ecologically destructive masculinities and outline an important new lens to understand and address the social and environmental challenges we face. Their new ecological masculinities perspective, which is grounded in profeminist men's capacities to care, provides realistic hope for a renewed ecologically sustainable relationship between men, masculinities and the Earth." - Bob Pease, co-editor of Critical Ethics of Care in Social Work (2017), Honorary Professor, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Deakin University, Australia and Adjunct Professor, Institute for the Study of Social Change, University of Tasmania, Australia "Associating the approach of caring with masculinities based on feminist thinking is a step up in western thought toward a more inclusive civilization. This is one of the most important contributions of this book on ecological masculinities." - Tammy Shel (Aboody) has a Ph.D. from UCLA in philosophy of education and is author of The Ethics of Caring (2007) "Ecological Masculinities is the first book-length and research- and theory-driven exploration of specifically men, masculinities, nature, and gender equity. [It] is likely to become an essential reference in future research on men and nature...[and] will provide readers from undergraduate students upward with guidance on how to advance further in this field and which "streams" to wade deeper into." - Harri Salovaara in Men and Masculinities, 2019, 1-2, DOI: 10.1177/1097184X19839444
