This chapter departs from the others in this book in that it explores some of the possibilities and pitfalls of quantitative approaches to understanding men and masculinities, drawing on the experience of a study of social connections and exclusion among Australian men and women. As co-authors, we (Roger and Barbara) come to the chapter with different backgrounds, values and subject positions, which we introduce below.
