Man's Estate

Landed Gentry Masculinities, 1660-1900

Henry French and Mark Rothery

  • One of the first in-depth studies of masculinity within a particular social group - the landed gentry - over a time span of several hundred years
  • Provides a new conception of the process of change in gender identities over time
  • Covers a time period that spans existing divides between eighteenth and nineteenth-century studies
  • Moves away from a reliance on printed literature, and focuses in detail on gentry correspondence
  • Concentrates on subjective experiences of secondary education, university, travel, and family life
