Part of the International and Cultural Psychology book series (ICUP, volume 4)


This introduction outlines some of the key themes of globalization such as the rupture caused between tradition and modernity by mass media and migration, as well as the creation of global cities based largely around technology and financial services. The concept of masculinities within a global context is then introduced, in terms of a continuing proliferation of masculinities, and how some are winners and other losers within globalization. The introduction concludes with some suggestions for the future direction of the study of masculinities and globalization.
