Explores the construction of masculinity in the nine volumes of the Sherlock Holmes stories from the 1887 A Study in Scarlet to the 1927 The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes, a period of important transition in cultural history. Analyzes such aspects as the idea of the gentleman, the role of reason, the nature of heroism, the ideology of chivalry, the functions of law and punishment, crime as a transgression of masculinity, and all-male groups such as schools and the army. Contends that popular fiction and detective fiction in particular both advanced ideas about masculinity and reflected cultural changes in them, and still does.
