¿¿Masculinities in a Global Era extends the conversation of masculinity studies by analyzing global masculinities from a psychological perspective. Canvassing a broad array of psychological aspects such as the construction of identity, the negotiation of power, coping with trauma, and sexuality, this volume shows how masculinities are experienced, performed and embodied in geographically dispersed communities. Importantly, Masculinities in a Global Era fulfills a much-needed but elusive need within the study of masculinities: a forum in which the often polarized approaches of pro-feminists and men's rights advocates can begin to move beyond their entrenched historical positions towards a more fruitful and nuanced future.¿

In his introduction to this volume, editor Joseph Gelfer references the emerging literature in global masculinity, including Connell (1998), Pease and Pringle (2001), and Blazina and Shen-Miller's (2011) International Psychology of Men. Given my lack of familiarity with this area, I approached Masculinities in a Global Era from the standpoint of one who is not a global masculinities scholar and is needier of an introduction than of an advanced course. With that perspective in mind, I don't think it is unfair to say that this volume can be considered as "Global Masculinities II." That is, most of the chapters seem to require the reader to have some degree of familiarity with scholarship in this field, as well as a deeper understanding of geography, international conflicts, and global political developments than most of us Americans have (sadly)...As a psychologist, I must add that this is quite unlike other multicultural works that I have encountered. It is a challenging and thought-provoking collection of loosely connected writings that will likely inspire reflection and revision of ideas. However, a reader will not complete this volume having acquired easily digestible information about clinical application or intervention principles...Masculinities in a Global Era is, however, likely to stimulate needed challenges to many entrenched ideas about gender, manhood, and masculinity. I would recommend it to folks in academia, qualitative researchers, and any thinking person wishing to understand the critical relevance of the life experiences of men that have been underrecognized and underappreciated in most all previous men's studies scholarship."
