The construction of Australian manliness has altered with the nation's development and the influence of world events. Among the various models held up as ideals we have had the laconic, resourceful bushman; the plucky, loyal Anzac; and the fit, athletic sportsman.In Making the Australian Male, Martin Crotty explores the changing ideologies of Australian manliness, particularly middle-class masculinity, over a crucial fifty-year period of our history. He examines changing emphases at boys' schools, mutations of the ideal hero in children's literature and boys' adventure stories, and the evolution of boys' organisations such as the Try Society and the Boy Scout movement.
