The American hunk is a cultural icon: the image of the chiseled, well-built male body has been promoted and exploited for commercial use for over 125 years, whether in movies, magazines, advertisements, or on consumer products, not only in America but throughout the world. American Hunks is a fascinating collection of full-colour images depicting the muscular American male as documented in popular culture from 1860 to 1970.
