Abstract [en]

The ambitious scope of Sam de Boise’s book is to deconstruct the clichés which have added to the creation of the ‘new emotional man’ stereotype, by focusing on music listening practices and forming music tastes; this is particularly relevant as ‘men aged between 35 and 44 in the UK are continually the largest consumers of music’ (p. 164). The author makes a significant contribution to knowledge by providing a critical analysis that bridges the fields of popular music, critical studies of men and masculinities, and the sociology of emotions. What is immediately apparent is de Boise’s astute capacity to deliver a highly readable historical analysis which contests the Cartesian model of the unemotional and disembodied rational man, by signposting the evolution of music genres in relation to masculinities, from a classed and a Western colonial perspective of ‘Othering’.
