This book uses evidence from science to cast some much-needed light onto some of today’s most hotly contested issues regarding men and masculinity. A spectrum of topics – including education, crime, mental health and the workplace – are explored, and questions answered. For example:

  • How much can we trust the prevailing narratives around men and masculinity?
  • What role do evolution, biology and culture play in shaping men’s behaviour?
  • Do we tend to blame men for their health problems more than we should?
  • What can be done to reduce male criminality?
  • How can the standard approach to men’s mental health be improved?
  • What does gender equality mean for men?
All too often in recent decades a balanced perspective has been missing from the academic and media narrative around child development, education, sports and exercise, the workplace, crime, the military, mental health, health and wellbeing, masculinity and sex differences. This book – in only 384 pages – refocuses our understanding.
