The Manly Art: Bare Knuckle Prize Fighting in America

by

The Manly Art: Bare Knuckle Prize Fighting in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Elliott J. Gorn's The Manly Art not only told the story of a controversial sport's origins but also helped shape the ways historians write about American culture. The book expanded scholarly boundaries by exploring masculinity as an historical subject and by suggesting that social categories like gender, class, and ethnicity can be understood only in relation to each other. This updated edition of Gorn's highly influential history of the early prize rings features a new afterword, the author's meditation on the ways in which studies of sport, gender, and popular culture have changed in the quarter century since the book was first published. An up-to-date bibliography ensures that The Manly Art will remain a vital resource for a new generation.
