Warrior Heroes and Little Green Men: Soldiers, Military Training, and the Construction of Rural Masculinities.
Woodward, Rachel
Rural Sociology, v65 n4 p640-57 Dec 2000
Examines military training in the United Kingdom; the construction of military masculinities, particularly the ideal type of the warrior hero; and the role of the countryside (as the training location) and rurality (as a social construction) in that process. Argues that becoming an infantry soldier means being molded to this hegemonic model of masculinity. (Contains 60 references.) (Author/SV)
