Young Masculinities: Understanding Boys in Contemporary Society

Front Cover
How do boys see themselves? Their peers? The adult world? What are their aspirations? Their fears? Centring on a study in which boys talked openly about such issues as their relationships with parents and friends, " hardness" , homophobia and football, and the importance of youth style, " race" and ethnicity, " Young Masculinities" should be of interest to students and researchers in psychology, sociology, gender and youth studies, as well as to those determining social policy on boys and young men.
