When Americans talked about politics in the 1950s, they always seemed to be talking about sex. Manhood and American Political Culture in the Cold War argues that the highly gendered and sexualized language of cold war politics was the product of specific anxieties that centered around post-war notions of masculinity. Investigating the major cultural contributions of figures like Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Joseph McCarthy, JFK, and Richard Nixon, Cuordileone offers a sexy reinterpretation of cold war politics.
