Summary Read First Chapter image missing

A collection of historical articles and essays by a pioneer in the field of masculinity studies.

In this collection, one of the world’s leading scholars in the field of masculinity studies explores the historical construction of American and British masculinities. Tracing the emergence of American and British masculinities, the forms they have taken, and their development over time, Michael S. Kimmel analyzes the various ways that the ideology of masculinity—the cultural meaning of manhood—has been shaped by the course of historical events, and, in turn, how ideas about masculinity have also served to shape those historical events. He also considers newly emerging voices of previously marginalized groups such as women, the working class, people of color, gay men, and lesbians to explore the marginalized and de-centered notions of masculinity and the political processes and dynamics that have enabled this marginalization to occur.

The History of Men: Essays on the History of American and British Masculinities offers a fascinating overview of white, middle-class, heterosexual masculinity throughout the history of the United States … Kimmel makes a major contribution with his demonstration of the connections between gender relations and developments in the means of production (industrialization), social geography, and political change.” — Feminist Collections

"Michael Kimmel is one of the great pioneers of the study of gender. He shows us how men—in all their variety—become men; how masculinities assume their shapes and powers. He has now brought together some of his landmark essays of the past few years. Read them, admire their vitality and range, and learn." — Catharine R. Stimpson

Michael S. Kimmel is Professor of Sociology at Stony Brook University, State University of New York. He has written and edited many books, including The Gender of Desire: Essays on Male Sexuality, also published by SUNY Press, and The Gendered Society, Second Edition. He is also the editor of Men and Masculinities, a leading journal in the field.
