Lucas Gottzén, Margunn Bjørnholt and Floretta Boonzaier, (eds., forthcoming 2020): Men, Masculinities and Intimate Partner Violence. London/New York: Routledge.

Although men’s violence against women has for a long time been recognized as a gendered issue, and a number of masculinity scholars have made important connections between theorising on men and masculinities and its relationship to violence, the question of men, masculinities and IPV has not been foregrounded in masculinity studies, gender studies or in studies of violence more broadly. This book aims to fill this gap by explicitly foregrounding the theorising of men and masculinities in the context of the study of intimate partner violence.
