Of Men is the name of the first chapter of Part Two of The War of the Jewels, which is the twelfth volume of The History of Middle-earth. In the table of contents of The War of the Jewels, this chapter is labeled as chapter 9.
The chapter that follows is "Of the Siege of Angband".
In this chapter, Christopher Tolkien records all the changes and alterations made to the content of the Quenta Silmarillion chapter 12, "Of Men". Notable alterations and dilemmas told of include the relocation of the land of Hildorien, the place where Man first was created, the question of whether the Sea of Rhun could be identifiable as the inland Sea of Helkar, the changing of the Quenya term for "the fathers of Men", the emendation of the Elf race-name Ekelli to Sindar, and, most prominently, the final shift from the use of the term "Gnome" to "Noldor [elf]".
