    Yes it's a bit dated some terminology isn't relevant any but it offers a pretty good summary of different perspectives on masculinity Definitely worth reading if you want to get your research started

    Dated AF but no surprise Like most textbooks this is accurate to a point so still retains valueYou'll likely have heard and seen all of the points or arguments insideIf you're looking for new thoughts you came likely to the wrong place If you came to get a slightly better understanding of how loosely organized and defined schools or groups of thought can be categorized you've come to the right place
