Proposing Men: Dialectics of Gender and Class in the Eighteen Century English Periodical

£12.99

Product description

Stanford University Press, 1998, first edition. Maurer, Shawn Lisa. Hardback, condition: used very good. Dj has shelf wear and a small (2cm) closed tear to rear. Grey boards with violet lettering, binding tight, pages clean and bright. Simultaneously challenging conventional male-dominated thought and revisionist modern feminism, this book argues that gendered identities can best be conceived relationally, and thus that a fuller understanding of gender roles in the eighteenth century (and by extension in our own) must include an analysis of men's place in the discourse of domesticity. Marshalling social history, political theory, economics, and sociology in an attempt to account historically for the appearance of the sentimental family-controlled by the man who is at once lover and husband, father and brother-this book forcefully questions the validity of the doctrine of separate spheres and the ascription of gender roles connected to it. The use of social periodicals provides compelling evidence for understanding the relationship between gender construction and class values. By focusing on such topics as courtship, marriage, and parent-child relations, the social periodical configured the nuclear family as a locus where emotional and sexual gratification supported material gain.
