Public Men offers an introduction to an exciting new field: the history of masculinities in the political domain and will be essential reading for students and specialists alike with interests in gender or political culture. By building upon new work on gender and political culture, these new case studies explore the gendering of the political domain and the masculinities of the men who have historically dominated it. As such, Public Men is a major contribution to our understanding of the history of Britain between the Eighteenth and the Twentieth centuries.
MATTHEW MCCORMACK is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Northampton, UK. He is interested in the links between gender and political culture in British history, and his publications include his book The Independent Man: Citizenship and Gender Politics in Georgian England (2005).
