Documenting lived experiences of men in charge of others, this collection creates a social and cultural history of early modern governing masculinities. Through a wide range of case studies, contributors explore what distinctions can be seen in ideas of authoritative masculine behaviour across Protestant and Catholic cultures, British and Continental models, from the late medieval to the end of the eighteenth century, and between urban and national expressions of authority.
