Abstract or Description

Sociological investigation of modernity, society and everyday life often centre on a predominately urban experience. The research in this book focuses on two areas of growing importance: masculinity as a socially-constructed gender, and the impact of place or space on identity, but considers young men living in areas that are not densely populated--rural or agricultural areas, coastal areas, lowly populated or un-developed areas--and how the characteristics of these places have impacted on their relationships, activities and identities. Examining both representations in film, print and media and ethnographic research methods, the reader is provided with evidence "straight from the horses mouth" and may reflect on the differences between popular representation and imagination and the everyday reality of existing on the physical margins of modern life.
