"Manhood in America is the gold standard for a broad-ranging cultural history of masculinity. It is a must-read in the study of masculinities."--Lauren Weis, American University "I love how the book is at once a study of masculinity and American culture. Manhood in America is an excellent resource for students who need historical and social grounding in order to make sense of the idea that gender, along with other human attributes of identity, are dependent on contextual definitions. It is a true wealth of information."--Joyce Janca-Aji, Coe College "This is the most comprehensive critical history of American masculinity in print. It is essential reading for anyone seeking a solid grounding in the field."--Christopher E. Forth, University of Kansas
