'An extremely useful contribution. With its rich, diverse and empirically grounded contributions, it should be widely read.'
Andrea Cornwall, Institute of Development Studies, Sussex University
'A compelling set of articles that depict men as misunderstood but truly necessary partners in the development process. The more one reads, the more it becomes clear that men represent a critical, but largely untapped resource that must be engaged in partnership to achieve gender equality.'
James Lang, Oxfam, UK
'This much needed book poses serious and timely questions about the scope and purpose of gender and development theory and practice.'
Judy El-Bushra, former research director of ACORD
'A thorough and thoughtful review of the state of affairs in studies of men and masculinities, and a clear and systematic text that every lecturer in gender and development will happily give as required readings to her students.'
Dubravka Zarkov, Institute of Social Studies
'Composed of a number of essays by academicians and policy workers and designed to stimulate dialogue between these two groups, the book provides for an array of approaches ranging from the densely theoretical to the pragmatic.'
Steven A. Zyck, Dartmouth College
