Meanings for Manhood
Mark C. Carnes, Clyde Griffen
University of Chicago Press, Oct 15, 1990 - Psychology - 288 pages
The stereotype of the Victorian man as a flinty, sexually repressed patriarch belies the remarkably wide variety of male behaviors and conceptions of manhood during the mid- to late- nineteenth century. A complex pattern of alternative and even competing behaviors and attitudes emerges in this important collection of essays that points toward a "gendered history" of men.
