Title: Men and the Language of Emotions
Written By: Dariusz Galasiński
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=0333995740
Description:

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.
