This chapter introduces the pioneering scholarship of feminists and other masculinities scholars who first drew attention to the connections between masculinities and militarism, many of whom argued that masculinities are causal in militarism and war. It goes on to highlight the work of scholars who complicated that original insight by drawing out attention to the multiplicity of masculinities at play in militarism and war, and their inherent contradictions and instabilities. It concludes with a discussion of the question of whether and how masculinities can be unravelled in the service of peace.
