The psychology of men and masculinities
is a broad, interdisciplinary field devoted
to the study of how men’s and boys’ lives
are shaped by biopsychosociocultural
influences as well as the constellation
of meanings associated with the male
biological sex. The use of the term
masculinities reflects the editors’ belief
that there are diverse meanings associated
with being male that vary across time,
situations, social groups, and cultures.
In the past three decades, there has been
an exponential growth in empirical
psychological research on men and masculinities, although this emerging
body of research has yet to be appropriately summarized, synthesized,
and critically evaluated.
This handbook addresses
that lack with a strong
focus on psychological
science. It tackles the full
spectrum of the theoretical, empirical, and practical, not only focusing on
the extant literature in traditional areas of men and masculinities, but also
highlighting new and emerging scholarship.
The handbook is divided into four sections:
• The first addresses historical, conceptual, and methodological
approaches to studying men and masculinities.
• The second examines specific populations of men with a strong focus
on developmental, cultural, and sexual orientation diversity.
• The third focuses on specific topics relevant to men’s lives, such as
careers, education, sexism, violence, and emotions.
• The fourth addresses several application domains, including men’s
helping seeking patterns, physical health, mental health, and experience
