Land, God, and Guns

Settler Colonialism and Masculinity in the American Heartland

This book is an antidote to the forms
of American nationalism, masculinity, exceptionalism, and self-anointed prowess
that are currently being flexed on the global stage.

Through a fascinating combination of ethnographic research
across seven US states and the application of postcolonial, anti-racist,
feminist and poststructuralist theories, Land, God, and Guns reveals
how time-honoured rites of passage associated with taken-for-granted notions of
manhood in the American Heartland are constitutive of a constellation of
colonial worldviews, capitalist logics, gender essentialisms, ethnocentric
religious beliefs, jingoistic populism, racial animus, and embodied violence. Les mer

Om boka

This book is an antidote to the forms
of American nationalism, masculinity, exceptionalism, and self-anointed prowess
that are currently being flexed on the global stage.

Through a fascinating combination of ethnographic research
across seven US states and the application of postcolonial, anti-racist,
feminist and poststructuralist theories, Land, God, and Guns reveals
how time-honoured rites of passage associated with taken-for-granted notions of
manhood in the American Heartland are constitutive of a constellation of
colonial worldviews, capitalist logics, gender essentialisms, ethnocentric
religious beliefs, jingoistic populism, racial animus, and embodied violence. A constellation that, within the US, upholds a heteropatriarchal
and racist ordering of life that both privileges and ultimately damages its
main proliferators - white settler men.



This is a detailed work that at once unravels rural white
settler masculinity and the US state at their roots, whilst demonstrating why
any analysis of the cultural production and social practice of masculinity in
the United States must take into account the country's historical trajectories
of imperialism, land dispossession, nation-state building, enslavement,
extractive accumulation and valorisation of masculinist assertions of
dominance.
