Appalachian Men of Action: Nascar At Bristol

Two models of masculinity have been presented in consumer research:the Mountain Man (Belk and Costa)and The Breadwinner/Rebel amalgam (Holt and Thompson). Using depth interviews and ethnography, we examine boundary conditions for both these models. We find that it is necessary to take into account regional manifestations of masculinity.
