Editorial Reviews

"Robert Hogg's insightful book presents a convincing argument for the cross-referencing of colonial experience within the framework of understanding masculinity." - Queensland Review "Men and Manliness on the Frontier is an accomplished piece of scholarship. Hogg offers a useful exploration of the ideological and material elements of frontier masculinity and makes good use of the archival treasures at his disposal. This book offers a valuable resource for anyone interested in the interconnections between lives, experiences and ideas in the history of masculinity." - Chris Brickell, Otago University
