Gender on Ice: American Ideologies of Polar Expeditions
U of Minnesota Press - 163 էջ
Annotation 'In this book, Bloom takes what might seem a very localized subject and shows how it opens up to all the central questions today in cultural studies around gender, nationhood, the politics of imperialism, race, male homosocial behavior, and the sociality of science. Gender on Ice has an eloquence and elegance that positively refreshing and the prose is stylish, engaging, and direct.' -Dana Polan, University of Pittsburgh.
