Overview

The Image of Man: The Creation of Modern Masculinity by George L. Mosse

To be manly, one must be brave, daring, cool under fire, physically strong, honorable, honest, and courteous. Above all, a man must not cry. Even today, many men accept these qualities as defining masculinity. But how did our idea of manliness evolve? This first historical account of the masculine stereotype in modern Western culture shows how it came to be, and how, today, the manly image is being challenged as never before. 23 illustrations.
