    Based on an analysis of more than print advertisements published between the early s and , as well as television commercials and recruiting Websites, the book argues that masculinity.   Manliness has always been linked to physical prowess and to war; indeed the warrior has been the archetypal man across countless cultures throughout time. In this magisterial excursion through literature, history, warfare, and sociology, one of our most prominent scholars tracks the complex relationship between the changing methods and goals of warfare and shifting models of manhood.

    Masculinity, Militarism, and Empathy by Gary Olson / June 16th, Knowing something of feminist-human rights activist and sociologist Kathleen Barry’s ground-breaking work on female sexual slavery and related topics, I hoped to unconditionally recommend her latest book Unmaking War, Remaking Men (Santa Clara, CA: Rising Phoenix, ).

The book is a must-read, however, not simply because of its penetrating observations on war, but for its insight into the very nature of manhood and honor –- stripped to its most basic core.

Thank You for Your Service by David Finkel. Thomas Newkirk is the author of numerous Heinemann titles, including Minds Made for Stories, The Art of Slow Reading, The Performance of Self in Student Writing (winner of the NCTE's David H. Russell Award), and Misreading by:   Since starting the Art of Manliness, I’ve read a boatload of books about masculinity, manliness, and simply being a man.

There are books out there on every aspect of the male experience from practical skills like carving a turkey and dressing well to sociological studies on what it means to be a man in history and modern society to more poetic examinations of the male experience.

A notorious man’s man, the American novelist and war journalist Ernest Hemingway has gone down in literary history for his penchant for violence and alcohol in his own life as well as his fiction (See: The Art of Manliness).His novels of men boxing, bullfighting, hunting giant fish, and battling each other in war have perpetuated the concept of masculinity as an ideal that must be achieved.

We can and should talk about men and masculinity in war, or even men and masculinity as war. We can do this by owning the problem and creating a more honest and realistic policy discussion of masculinity and war, which can be carefully informed by psychology, ethics, sociology, biology and, of course, humanity.

Utilising original interview data from British Reaper drone crews, the book analyses the way killing by drones complicates traditional understandings of masculinity and femininity in warfare.This book argues that Haunting provides a framework for both revealing and destabilising gendered binaries of use for feminist security studies and International Relations scholars, as well as shedding light on British drone warfare.

This book will be of interest to students of gender studies, sociology, war studies, and critical security studies.
