Sentimental Masculinity and the Rise of History 1790-1890.
Goode dives into the development of modern historical thought and finds that struggles over definitions of masculinity played a major role. It's interesting to look at history through the eyes of satirists, novelists, cartoonists, and other non-historians of the period. Austen, Scott, Burke, Paine, Adam Smith, Hazlitt, Gillray, Rowlandson, and many more artists and cultural commentators are studied. Cambridge UP. Paper. 2014. NEW. $28.00
