Books about heroic ‘white blokes’ are under threat, claims Ernest Shackleton expert

Books about “manly” heroes are on “borrowed time”, an expert on Ernest Shackleton has said, as society dismisses male virtues as "toxic masculinity".

The ship sank in 1915, yet there it was on video — the ship’s apt name carved on the stern, reminding us of Shackleton’s exploits.
