Canadian Men and Masculinities
Historical and Contemporary Perspectives
The chief aim of this book is to examine, from historical and contemporary perspectives, the production and performance of men, boys, and embodied masculinity within the Canadian context. Within this framework, Canadian Men and Masculinities explores a range of issues including modern fatherhood, black male athleticism, indigenous masculinities, wrestling, and body building.
This volume will be a valuable resource for general readers and professionals in sociology, history, education, and social and gender studies.
“I think that more books specific to Canadian men and masculinities are required and this represents an interesting and important addition to the market.”
Kate Fletcher, University of Ottawa
“I think this [will] be a valuable and useful addition to the field. In fact, given the topics covered, I think it can stand on its own and not just be considered a book for a Canadian audience.”
Marc Ouellette, Brock University
