Reviews

Men's Health Equity presents a timely and welcome intersectional analysis of multiple men's health issues, from cancer and diabetes to trauma and suicide. Contributions from leading experts across different disciplines showcase the impact of social determinants, such as racism, homophobia and deprivation, on the health and wellbeing of diverse groups of men. I believe this volume will prove to be a landmark text for understanding - and improving - serious health inequalities affecting men and their communities. Brendan Gough Professor of Social Psychology Leeds School of Social Sciences
