Glover, Lorri

SUMMARY

Southern Sons, the first work in masculinity studies to concentrate on the early South, explores how young men of the southern gentry came of age between the 1790s and the 1820s. Lorri Glover examines how standards for manhood came about, how young men experienced them in the early South, and how those values transformed many American sons into southern nationalists who ultimately would conspire to tear apart the republic they had been raised to lead.This was the first generation of boys raised to conceive of themselves as Americans, as well as the first cohort of self-defined southern men. They had to pass exacting tests of manhood -- in education, refinement, courting, careers, and slave mastery. Only then could they join the ranks of the elite and claim power in society."Glover's new study of southern elite manhood in the new nation is an important contribution to southern history as well as to gender history." -- William and Mary Quarterly"Southern Sons is an impressive work, certain to influence -- and perhaps even reshape -- Southern social and cultural history for years to come, as well as the history of American masculinities." -- The Historian"We read about young men who exhibited a lifelong negotiation with authority, with society's expectations, with one another, and eventually with the North... Well-written, meticulously researched." -- Journal of the Early RepublicLorri Glover is an associate professor of history at the University of Tennessee and author of All Our Relations: Blood Ties and Emotional Bonds among the Early South Carolina Gentry.Glover, Lorri is the author of 'Southern Sons Becoming Men in the New Nation', published 2006 under ISBN 9780801884986 and ISBN 0801884985.
