This introduction introduces the chapters that follow, and draws out their major themes and their place in the historiography of masculinities. It explains how the chapters have been arranged, loosely, in chronological order to draw out the fine-grained detail of change across the long nineteenth century, and how this approach reveals the myriad ways in which states, maritime institutions and industries, and sailors themselves, deployed and debated, accommodated and adapted, rearticulated and reshaped the perceptions and practices of masculinities in a modernising world—and how that navigational work was never complete.
