Reviews

"A major intervention into masculinities studies, Masculinity in Transition brilliantly and consistently pushes the field toward a critical understanding of masculinity as a complex gender formation. K. Allison Hammer undertakes nuanced readings of a wide array of texts to offer a new understanding of masculinity and the ways in which it both serves and subverts hegemonic social, sexual, and racial hierarchies."--Christopher Breu, author of Hard-Boiled Masculinities

"How might we understand masculinity if we turn toward culture rather than biology? In compelling case studies, Masculinity in Transition insightfully examines normative masculinity's associations with the phallus, domination, and impenetrability. However, K. Allison Hammer also brilliantly uses these sites to uncover remakings of masculinity that center care, porosity, and unruly alliances--uplifting models for the precarious now."--Amber Jamilla Musser, author of Sensual Excess: Queer Femininity and Brown Jouissance
