Making men: rugby and masculine identity

John Nauright (Editor), Timothy J.L. Chandler (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook - edited

Abstract

This text looks at how an understanding of rugby can provide insight into what it has meant to "be a man" in societies influenced by the ideals of Victorian upper and middle classes. It shows that rugby has been a means of promoting male exclusivity, but also been a means of cultural incorporation.
