Description - Dislocating Masculinity by Andrea Cornwall

Much recent writing on and by men suggests that male prerogatives are being sustained and lent authority by the new discipline of 'men's studies'. Dislocating Masculinity brings together a critical set of papers on men and masculinities which raise important new questions for gender studies - in settings which range from imperial India to rural Zimbabwe to the gay community in London. 'Hegemonic masculinity' is deconstructed to reveal the complexities of gendered difference, and the familiar oppostitions of male/female and masculinity/feminity are analysed - including the assumption that 'a man is a man' everywhere, and means the same thing everywhere.
