Description
Leo Braudy discusses his book, “From Chivalry to Terrorism.” The book takes a look at masculinity throughout history, beginning with Greek and Roman mythology and spanning to the present. He talks about how Julius Caesar revolutionized Rome with organized war. Braudy defines masculinity as constantly changing. He talks about how the image of the soldier changes in each culture, and how technology is allowing modern soldiers to withdraw from hand-to-hand combat and rely on intellect. He describes what happens to defeated countries after a time of war, and the victimization and revenge periods they go through. Martinson asks Braudy to read a passage about the effects of war. He ends the interview by discussing the findings of Alfred Kinsey and talks about society’s notions of male sexuality.
