Part history book, part gender theory and part cultural criticism, “Farewell Manly Strength: Masculinity and the Politics of Emotion” points to the relationship between post-truth politics and gender. Exploring the significant import of emotion in the maintenance of entrenched structures of power, Field reveals "crisis masculinity" and gaslighting to be integral aspects of the dominating culture.
