This path-breaking study explores the diverse and varied meanings of manhood in early modern England and their complex, and often contested, relationship with patriarchal principles. Using social, political and medical commentary, alongside evidence of social practice derived from court
records, Dr Shepard argues that patriarchal ideology contained numerous contradictions, and that, while males were its primary beneficiaries, it was undermined and opposed by men as well as women.

This is a rich and subtle analysis and adds considerably to the sophistication of our understanding of social relations and social change in the early modern period.
Alexandra Shepard's fine book constitutes an important addition to the literature of gender in early modern England, and her emphasis on diversity in contemporary meanings of manhood lays down a challenge for others to pursue still further.
This recent study of early modern masculinity is to be welcomed...Alexandra Shepard has increased our understanding of how men's experiences of their gender varied according to their age, marital status and, increasingly, their class.
