Contents: Gender, History and the West - «He's not a man! He's a sack of money!»: Corporatism and the Male Breadwinner - «Back home they think I'm very strange. I'm a feminist»: Re-Evaluating the Feminine Other - «You're the party done all the suffering»: Representing Stereotypes of Native Americans in the «Pro-Indian» Western Cycle - «A pistol don't make a man»: Technology and Masculine Gender Performances - «Who are those guys?»: Understanding American Intervention in the «South of the Border» Western - «As unmarked as their place in history»: Black Westerns, an Alternative History of Masculinities?
The «Western» embodies many of the stereotypes of masculinity: rugged, independent men in cowboy hats roam the barren landscapes of the American West, resolving conflicts with guns and tough talk. Where did these cowboys come from? What historical trends led to their emergence on screen?
