Masculinities and Violence, the latest volume in the Research on Men and Masculinities series, takes a sobering look at men and violence. Editor Lee H. Bowker has carefully chosen essays that shed light on the causes and settings of masculine violence. The three essays in Part I lay out the ways in which men learn violence and repeat it. Part II focuses on the ways men victimize women and children. Part III turns to ways men victimize other men. Finally, Part IV looks at men and organizational violence. Understanding the masculinities-violence nexus is crucially important to finding ways to mitigate the masculine tendency to violence. This perceptive volume will be an important resource for all those interested in the field of gender roles, men's studies, and interpersonal violence.
