Rural-urban migration within China has transformed and reshaped rural people's lives during the past three decades. Within this context, feminist scholars have addressed rural women's experience of struggle and empowerment in urban China, but in contrast, research on rural men's experience of migration is currently underdeveloped. This book provides a pro-feminist sociological study of Chinese male migrant workers' identity formation by examining their experience of rural-urban migration as an emerging sector of a dislocated urban working class. It aims to unpack the gender politics of Chinese men and masculinities, thus contributing to an understanding of global masculinities in an international context.
