Masculinity and Imperialism Bibliography


Here is (finally) the promised bibliography on men/masculinities and imperialism/colonialism. I have included only secondary sources, and of those only the ones that address masculinity/men in a more direct way.

I would like to thank everyone on H-WOMEN who contributed to the bibliography. As this is a part of my dissertation project, I welcome any comments/additions you may have. I will up-date the biliography every now and then and post it on the net.

Please send you comment/addition to me at pahonen@sol.uvic.ca

I hope you find this bibliography helpful.
