 In Men and the Language of Emotions Dariusz Galasinski challenges the
 commonly held association of rationality with masculinity, involving
 distancing from the language of emotions. Drawing on a major study of
 heterosexual men talking about their life and relationships, he
 demonstrates that men are capable of speaking of emotions and can do so in
 direct and uninhibited ways. He also discusses the crucial role of
 emotionality in constructions of masculine identities - those of men,
 fathers or husbands. The book ends with a proposal for a radically
 contextual understanding of gender and gender identities.
