Many books have been written about women, as such; women as females. This is a book about men, as such; men as males. Women have been considered as a sex, and their character and actions so discussed. This book considers men as a sex; and their character and actions are so discussed. Too much of women's influence is dreaded as "feminization"—as likely to render our culture "effeminate." Too much of men's influence is here studied as "masculization" and as having rendered our culture—there is no analogue for "effeminate." We have heard much of the "eternal womanly;" this book treats of the eternal manly. "Cherchez la femme!" is the old hue and cry; this book raises a new one: "Cherchez l'homme!"
