This chapter provides a summary of the emergence of Chinese masculinity studies in the Anglophone world in recent years and concludes that even though it is a rapidly growing field, good book-length studies specific to researching Chinese masculinity are still limited. The chapter then describes the contents of the book, indicating the reasons for the way the volume is structured and some of the main themes that are discussed. It then gives a rundown of each chapter, showing how they fit in the framework of the book.

Keywords:   Chinese masculinity, gender studies, traditional China, global China
