Books By Author John Tosh

Man's Place by John Tosh 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.

Masculinities in Politics and War by John Tosh Masculinities in Politics and War, Paperback (April 2004)

This book opens up new avenues in gender history by mapping masculinity's part in making revolution, waging war, building nations, and constructing welfare states. Written in a highly accessible style, targeted at both students, professional historians and the interested general reader.
