About this book

In mid-nineteenth-century Britain, there existed a dominant discourse on what it meant to be a man –denoted by the term 'manliness'. Based on the sociological work of R.W. Connell and others who argue that gender is performative, Robert Hogg asks how British men performed manliness on the colonial frontiers of Queensland and British Columbia.

Reviews

“Robert Hogg examines the gendered expectations, manly identities, and lived experiences of British men in mid-nineteenth-century Queensland and British Columbia. … Hogg’s rich attention to men’s lived experiences not only makes this an eminently readable book but also helps to deepen existing understandings of mid-nineteenth-century British Columbia. … Hogg’s comparative approach should also be intriguing for readers interested in colonial British Columbia.” (Laura Ishiguro, The British Columnian Quartlerly, Vol. 189, April, 2016)

"Robert Hogg's insightful book presents a convincing argument for the cross-referencing of colonial experience within the framework of understanding masculinity." - Queensland Review

"Men and Manliness on the Frontier is an accomplished piece of scholarship. Hogg offers a useful exploration of the ideological and material elements of frontier masculinity and makes good use of the archival treasures at his disposal. This book offers a valuable resource for anyone interested in the interconnections between lives, experiences and ideas in the history of masculinity." - Chris Brickell, Otago University

"Men and Manliness on the Frontier adds to imperial history by describing masculinites as they evolved in two different, yet similar, British colonies ... this work will be useful to historians of British gender and empire as well as those of Canada and Australia." - The Historian
