Introduction

WithMatthew Maycock

The introductory chapter outlines the structure of the book and provides a theoretical and methodological context for the subsequent chapters. This includes a jargon-free summary of the main argument, that the analysis of masculinity of contemporary slavery and freedom provides a range of insights into the transition to freedom. Ultimately, this illustrates the ways in which consideration of gender and masculinity will enrich the existing contemporary slavery literature.
