    schema:reviewBody ""American Masculinities: A Historical Encyclopedia is a first-of-its kind reference, detailing developments in the growing field of men's studies. This up-to-date analytical review serves as a marker of how the field has evolved over the last decade. From John Wayne to Malcolm X, Davy Crockett to James Dean, Cary Grant to Clint Eastwood, American men have defined, imagined, and experienced male identity in a multitude of ways, each reflecting the changing social, cultural, and political climate of the United States." "Weaving the fabric of American history, American Masculinities illustrates how American political leaders have often used the rhetoric of manliness to underscore the presumed moral righteousness and ostensibly protective purposes of their policies. Seeing U.S. history in terms of gender archetypes, readers will gain a richer and deeper understanding of America's democratic political system, domestic and foreign policies, and capitalist economic system, as well as the "private" sphere of the home and domestic life." "Encapsulating the current state of scholarly interpretation within the field of men's studies, American Masculinities: A Historical Encyclopedia is designed to help students and scholars advance their studies, develop new questions for research, and stimulate new ways of exploring the history of American life."--Jacket." ;
