Welcome to a collection of my monographs, journal articles, and freelance
writing on gender issues. Scroll for links to my scholarly publications
on feminism and gender issues, and to the text of my study, "The Globe
and Males," examining the coverage of men in "Canada's National Newspaper."
There's also the text of a 1992 radio interview, a range of short polemics on various taboo subjects, and my article on men and international human rights for The Globe and Mail. The most recent updates include my scholarly work on "gendercide" and materials on gender-selective atrocities in Kosovo and East Timor.
This volume has just been published by Zed Books. Its purposeis to advance the
study of men and masculinities in the developing world by presenting its subjects
in an accessible and profoundly human fashion that will appeal to students
and others interested in Third World development, gender issues, human rights,
international political economy, and a range of other subject-areas.
The most wide-ranging book ever published on gender-selective
mass killing, or "gendercide," this collection of essays is
also the first to explore systematically the targeting of non-combatant
"battle-age" males in various wartime and peacetime contexts.
"An excellent study ... even-handed and persuasive."
- George Bain, Media Critic, Maclean's Magazine
"For Adam Jones, coverage is the real issue. ... Because Jones' conclusions fly so completely in the face of conventional wisdom, one might be tempted to dismiss them. But that would be premature. First, his is essentially the only scientific research to do an in-depth analysis of each and every article concerning violence over a certain time period, and to evaluate whether it contained bias against either portraying the man as a victim, or the woman as the victimizer. ... Second, his findings are confirmed by anecdotal accounts by dozens of men and women who work in the media." - Armin A. Brott, Nieman Reports (Harvard University), Winter 1994
Evidence is mounting that the Indonesian military's genocidal assault
on the Timorese people constitutes another "gendercide," that is,
a mass gender-selective campaign of extermination. As with the recent
Kosovo events, I am posting excerpts from media coverage to draw together
the fragmentary eyewitness and second-hand accounts of atrocities against
both men and women.
