This book presents the first published comprehensive overview and critical assessment of the relationship between law and masculinities. It provides a general introduction to the subject whilst, via a series of interlinked readings, engaging with the difficult question of what it means to speak of the masculinity of law in the first place.

As a study of the bigger picture of the relationship between men and law, the result is an innovative, timely and important text which has the potential to reach a diverse readership within the sub-fields of legal studies and across other disciplines.
