Abstract

'Assembling a distinguished group of European, American, and Australian scholars, French Masculinities applies and advances the latest ideas and approaches to the subject. Forth and Taithe emphasize that the story of French manhood through the ages is especially complicated and distinctive for several reasons, including the nation's ambivalent military heritage and current waning international status. Framing the book brilliantly are a substantial introductory survey of issues and scholarship by the editors and an Afterword by Robert Nye, doyen of the history of masculinity in France. This welcome work will surely become a point de departfor all future scholarly work in the field.' - Mark Micale, University of Illinois 'A welcome addition to the growing corpus of collected articles on the history of masculinity. What this collection does especially well is provide an overview of the history.' - Morag Martin, Medical History 'In Forth and Taithe's edited collection we now have an excellent survey of the changing notions of what - over the course of three centuries - it meant to be a man in France.' -Angus McLaren, European History Quarterly (Publisher Synopsis)
