What is masculinity?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Oct 29, 2003

Harvard political theorist Harvey Mansfield is working on a new book about what it means to be manly.

If you read his critical Wall Street Journal review of another effort in that field, you'll understand why I'm looking forward to reading Mansfield's finished product.

You'll also understand why Mansfield's thinking is not terribly popular among his politically correct colleagues.

    I just finished Harvey C Mansfield's translation of The Prince by Machiavelli, and would like someday day to read his translation (along with his wife) of Tocqueville's Democracy in America. He may just be my favorite present day "Straussian".
