Kann demonstrates how hegemonic norms of manhood–exemplified by way of "the relations Man," for instance--were deployed as a way of stigmatizing unworthy males, lucrative liable males with citizenship, and empowering extraordinary males with positions of management and authority, whereas apart from girls from public life.
Kann means that the founders dedicated themselves in conception to the democratic proposition that every one males have been created unfastened and equivalent and will no longer be ruled with no their very own consent, yet that they on no account believed that "all males" can be relied on with equivalent liberty, equivalent citizenship, or equivalent authority. The founders constructed a "grammar of manhood" to deal with a few tough questions about public order. have been America's disorderly males certified for citizenship? have been they prone to realize manly leaders, consent to their authority, and defer to their knowledge? A Republic of Men compellingly analyzes the ways that the founders used a rhetoric of manhood to stabilize American politics.
