Image of Man by George L. Mosse

Book Description

This is the first historical account of the masculine stereotype as it evolved in modern Western culture. It shows how 20th-century fascism gave the manly ideal its extreme expression - in mass rallies that glorified the storm trooper while attacking such 'unmanly men' as Jews and homosexuals.
