Abstract

Analyzing literary texts, plays, films and photographs within a transatlantic framework, this volume explores the inseparable and mutually influential relationship between different forms of national identity in Great Britain and the United States and the construction of masculinity in each country. The editors and contributors stress the importance of understanding the context for more pluralistic, culturally differentiated, transnational masculinities, arguing that it is possible to conceptualize and emphasize difference and commonality simultaneously.
