Review of Warrior Pursuits by Robert A. Nye

A new review by Professor Robert A. Nye of my book, Warrior Pursuits: Noble Culture and Civil Conflict in Early Modern France, has just appeared in the Journal of Interdisciplinary History.

I am pleased to read Professor Nye’s critique of my book, since he has worked extensively on French nobles and masculinity. Nye’s Masculinity and Male Codes of Honor in Modern France (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1993) is one of the earliest serious studies on noble honor to employ history of masculinity approaches.

Professor Nye’s review is available as a .pdf download, but only through individual journal subscriptions to the Journal of Interdisciplinary History or through library databases.
