Michael Kimmel: Manhood in America. A Cultural History
This book, originally a trade publication, is a written history of the way manhood has been constructed and portrayed in America. It is designed for courses on masculinity, which are becoming increasingly commonplace in the gender curriculum. It also can serve as a supplement for courses in gender studies, gender roles, and cultural history, taught in a number of disciplines. This edition features updated chapters and examples, including coverage through the Bush administration, touching on how notions of masculinity affect current political and social issues.
