Masculinities and Violence

Edited by:


February 1998 | 288 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Understanding the masculinities-violence nexus is crucially important to finding ways to mitigate the masculine tendency towards violence. Taking a sobering look at men and violence, Lee H Bowker has carefully chosen essays which shed light on the causes and settings of masculine violence. The three essays in Part One lay out the ways in which men learn violence and repeat it. Part Two focuses on the ways men victimize women and children. Part Three turns to the ways men victimize other men, and the final part examines men and organizational violence.
