Title: Men and the Language of Emotions
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=280692
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This book challenges the widely held stereotype that men either have an
impoverished emotional life or are inhibited in talking about their
emotions. In this major study of middle-aged and older heterosexual men,
Dariusz Galasinski demonstrates that they talk about their emotions both
indirectly and openly, that masculinity can be constructed in terms of
emotions and emotionality in both men's as well as women's discourse.
Taking a radically contextual notion of identity, the author argues further
for a disassociation of father's identity from biological fatherhood,
demonstrating that men can construct themselves as genderless parents. He
shows how, faced with unemployment or other difficult experiences, men and
women use the same discursive practices in expressing feelings of
helplessness. Finally, the book challenges the notion that gender is
relevant to all social interactions, concluding that class, ethnicity or
employment are fare more significant.
