The independent man

Citizenship and gender politics in Georgian England

Matthew McCormack

Published by Manchester University Press

Gender in History MUP

  • Makes a link between the histories of masculinity and politics, arguing that politics has a fundamental impact on gender, as well as the reverse
  • Offers a critique of dominant interpretations such as 'the emergence of separate spheres' in gender studies, and the triumph of 'parliamentary reform' and 'liberal' ideology in politics
  • Uses many neglected sources, and re-reads familiar political materials in light of new developments in gender studies and cultural theory
