Drawing on a wide range of American and British sources- from diaries, logbooks, and account ledgers tosongs, poetry, fiction and a range of public sources- the authors show how popular fascination with seafaring and the sailors' rigorous, male-only li fe led to models of gender behavior based on 'iron men' aboard ship and 'stoic women' ashore." -from the cover.
