An interdisciplinary, cross-cultural study of masculinities in organizational settings is provided in this volume. The contributions shed new light on many of the misconceptions that have plagued the study of organizations, arguing that: sex and gender are not synonymous; masculinity is not homogenous; and that the difference presented by masculinities and men needs to be studied if valuing differences in organizations is to occur.
