Description

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.

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.
