Description

Australian manliness has altered with the nation's development and the influence of world events. Among the various models held up as ideals we have had the laconic, resourceful bushman; the plucky, loyal Anzac; the fit, athletic sportsman; the loud-mouthed, beer-swilling worker; and the sensitive new age guy. In Making the Australian Male, Martin Crotty explores the changing ideologies of Australian manliness, particularly middle-class masculinity, over a crucial fifty-year period of our history. In this engrossing book, Martin Crotty shows how redefinitions of middle-class manliness reflect the power relations in Australian society.show more
