Reviews

"Impressive and innovative.. The book deftly presents theories, empirically rich, and also rather comprehensible to readers. I would strongly recommend it to scholars who engage in gender and migration studies in China and beyond, as well as anyone who is interested in migration, family and gender issues."--New Books Asia
"Masculine Compromise makes a prominent contribution to the existing literature of men and rural-urban migration in China, with a primary focus on the migrant men's family lives and personal relationships. . . . The book captures the power of patriarchy and the notion of masculine ideals through unfolding the patrilineal and patrilocal practices in the migrant men's everyday lives."--Sociology
