Overview


Politics and war are crucial to the history of masculinity, yet have been neglected in the emergent historiography of masculinity. This book opens up new avenues in gender history by mapping masculinity's part in making revolution, waging war, building nations, and constructing welfare states.

An innovative collection with contributions from an international group of eminent historians who are recognised experts in their fields, with essays on Europe, the United States, Latin America, Australia, Africa and Asia. Written in a highly accessible style, targeted at both students, professional historians and the interested general reader.
