Using contemporary gender theory to examine gender and rurality beyond that of simply women/femininities, this illuminating
book accurately locates the subject of masculinities within the rural/agricultural context.While there has been a wealth of
literature on men and masculinities published in recent years, the climate of ideas has been typically experienced through
an urban lens. This book therefore investigates new conceptual territory.Embedded in the literature on gender and rurality
as well as the scholarship on gender and organizations/management, the book draws on an in-depth ethnographic study of gender
relations in Australian agricultural politics. It will speak to academic audiences in rural social sciences, gender studies
and management/organization studies.
