Morrell, Robert


Awarded the Hiddingh-Currie Award for academic excellence. The book is the first on South African history to focus on the concept of masculinity; it examines how the forces of race and class were expressed in gendered ways from a century ago in South Africa. Its central concern is how white men established their dominance and constructed their masculinity, cataloguing and exploring the significance of the political and public dominance of white men. It argues that a particular type of settler masculinity was constructed and became dominant as a prescription for proper male behaviour; and shows how it excluded and silenced rival interpretations, and promoted the development of a closed and racially exclusive colonial society. The study concentrates on the white settler population around Pietermaritzburg, the capital of the then colony of Natal.Morrell, Robert is the author of 'From Boys to Gentlemen', published 2002 under ISBN 9781868881512 and ISBN 1868881512.
