This book addresses many of the crucial questions confronting gender studies. The readings included here have emerged from the experiences of men and women struggling to make sense of the impact of the mens movement on their individual lives and on their communities. Blending theory and practice and informed largely by postmodern and social constructionist perspectives, the chapters bring together personal issues and political concerns against a background of therapeutic and political approaches to change. The overall tone is hopeful, providing practical ways to move forward. However, issues of structured power, inequality, and oppression are firmly faced. Balancing these issues is the clearly empathetic understanding of the predicaments faced by men in their everyday lives. The editors are careful to offer an even-handed analysis of mens concerns without compromising womens struggle for gender justice.
