Nine Centuries of Man

Manhood and Masculinity in Scottish History

Edited by Lynn Abrams and Elizabeth L. Ewan

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Scotland, with its stereotypes of the kilted warrior and the industrial 'hard man' has long been characterised in masculine terms, but there has been little historical exploration of what masculinity actually means for men (and women) in a Scottish context. This interdisciplinary collection explores a diverse range of the multiple and changing forms of masculinities from the late eleventh to the late twentieth century, examining the ways in which Scottish society through the ages defined expectations for men and their behaviour.
