Write The First Customer Review

When Americans talked about politics in the 1950s, this title argues, they always seemed to be talking about sex. Political discourse was inundated with references to soft and hard, to masochism and impotency, to thrusts and ecstacies. Cuordileone argues that the gendered and sexualized language of Cold Warriors was produced by specific anxieties about masculinities. To support this interpretation she offers readings of figures like Norman Mailer, Arthur Schlesinger and JFK.
