Description : Independence' was an important ideal for men in Georgian England. In this period however, the word meant much more than simply the virtues of self-sufficiency and impartiality. Most people believed that obligations absolutely compromised freedom and conscience, whereas 'independence' was associated with manly virtue and physical vigour. Fundamentally, the political world was thought to consist of 'independent men', exercising their consciences and standing up for the general good. As such, Georgians thought about political action and masculine virtue very differently to the ways in which we do today. In this important new study, Matthew McCormack establishes the links between the histories of masculinity and politics, highlighting the centrality of 'manly' ideals in the political world and - conversely - the role of politics in the operation of gender ideology. The book will be welcomed by students and specialists alike with interests in politics, gender studies or British history in the period

Description : Middle-aged Will Sonnet lives on twelve acres in the middle of peace and serenity, where fixing fences and pounding nails distracts him from a string of pompous, egotistical bosses he has endured at his job for the last several years. Content with his independent life and his dog, Stretch, as his best friend, Will finds it challenging to find a good woman—one who will not be concerned with changing him. As a result, marriage is but a distant thought. But when his neighbor Sarah shows up at his door with lunch, an invitation to share the day in the country arises, everything changes. Suddenly Will realizes that Sarah’s companionship is hard to surpass. With a comforting laugh and total acceptance of him as a man, Sarah envelops Will in the folds of unconditional love as two souls are brought together by fate. As two dreams are brought together as one, both Will and Sarah soon learn that the past is better left behind, leaving the future guided by only their hearts as they finally learn to embrace and accept true love.
