“This is an indispensable aid for navigating a way through the huge and ever-expanding field of masculinity studies. The Bibliography’s global scope reflects the way in which an interest in men and masculinities has been taken up in different contexts around the world. Janssen is to be congratulated for drawing together so many sources and making them so accessible.”
