Dariusz Galasinski challenges the commonly held association of rationality with masculinity, involving distancing from the language of emotions. Drawing on a major study of heterosexual men talking about their lives and relationships, he demonstrates that men are capable of speaking of emotions and can do so in direct and uninhibited ways. He also discusses the crucial role of emotionality in constructions of masculine identities--those of men, fathers and husbands. The book ends with a proposal for a radically contextual understanding of gender and gender identities.

'Letting us hear the voices of men who go about their lives worrying, loving, suffering, caring, fearing, and enjoying things, this book succeeds in replacing the tired stereotype of the 'strong silent man' with a sensitive and nuanced portrayal of complex, contradictory, and emotional real-life masculinities.' Aneta Pavlenko, Temple University
