Description: This collection is the first to analyze the concepts and issues involved in exploring African men and the constructions of masculinity in sub-Saharan Africa. Major themes include men as gendered actors, the social construction of masculinity, masculinity as a relational category, and hegemonic and subordinate masculinities. This book challenges stereotypes of African men as savages, patriarchs, or emasculated colonial victims. Essays establish the centrality of gender to the social and political transformation of 20th-century Africa. Chronologically and regionally diverse, the collection moves from the early colonial period through the era of independence and includes local studies throughout the continent, as well as the work of both junior and senior scholars. Anyone interested in scholarship on gender and Africa will find this collection invaluable and thought provoking.
