Domination of the public domain by men is well-established, yet their prominence is often ignored in social and political analyses. "Men in the Public Eye" examines the problems of "public men" within "public patriarchies." The contributors address two central questions: why and how men dominate in the public worlds of work, politics, and culture; and how these public worlds construct public men and public masculinities in different and changing ways.
These questions are examined by focusing on the years 1870-1920, a period of massive growth and transformation in the power of the public domain. The past and present are compared, revealing why men's domination in and of the public domain has been a vital feature of gender relations in patriarchy, both in public and private domains.
Interdisciplinary in approach, "Men in the Public Eye" is of interest to undergraduates, graduates, and academics in gender studies, women's studies, and history.
