Sovereign Masculinity

Gender Lessons from the War on Terror

Bonnie Mann

Studies in Feminist Philosophy

  • Mann presents a new theory of gender, which focuses on what gender does in the life of the nation.
  • This book makes a novel contribution to contemporary political philosophy by unpacking masculinity in its American manifestation in relation to the currently popular topics of "sovereignty," "empire," and "the state of exception."
  • Mann here engages with and advances Beauvoir scholarship by offering a detailed account of the theme of justification in Beauvoir's work.
