This volumes offers a comprehensive and critical overview of ideas of how virilité has been imagined in France from the eighteenth tp twentieth century. Incorporating insights of cultural and social historians, this collection approaches masculinities in a complex and interdisciplinary manner that will appeal to a wide range of readers. Assembling a distinguished group of European, American, and Australian scholars, the volume French Masculinities applies and advances the latest ideas and approaches to the subject. The editors Christopher Forth and Bertrand 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.
