For German townsmen, life during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was characterized by a culture of arms, with urban citizenry representing the armed power of the state. This book investigates how men were socialized to the martial ethic from all sides, and how masculine identity was confirmed with blades and guns.

One of the best contextual HEMA books I've read; also an excellent primer on masculine/feminine dichotomy in early modern Germany. I got this book to help me research the contextual status of Jews involved in the HEMA tradition, and I learned more in a few pages here than I had in multiple years prior.

The writing is academic but accessible.
