Man's Place, Paperback (March 2007)
Domesticity is generally treated as an aspect of women's history. This study of the 19th-century middle class shows how profoundly men's lives were conditioned by the Victorian ideal and how they negotiated its many contradictions. It looks at the experience of boyhood, married life, sex, and fatherhood in the early decades of the 19th-century.
