Yale University Press, 1 ene 1990 - 258 páginas

"Absorbing, well-argued, and finely written."--Nicola Shulman, Sunday Times, London

Gilmore finds that a culturally sanctioned stress on manliness--on toughness and aggressiveness, stoicism and sexuality--is almost universal, deeply ingrained in the consciousness of hunters and fishermen, workers and warriors, poets and peasants who have little else in common.
