Young Masculinities (by Stephen Frosh, Ann Phoenix and Rob Pattman)

£12.00

Product description

Young Masculinities (by Stephen Frosh, Ann Phoenix and Rob Pattman). Publishers: Palgrave Publishers Ltd, 2002. Paperback. Cover and book are in very good condition.
How do boys see themselves? Their peers? The adult world? What are their aspirations, their fears? How do they feel about their own masculinity? This book examines aspects of 'young masculinities' that have become central to contemporary social thought, paying attention to psychological issues as well as to social policy concerns. In describing this material, the authors explore questions such as the place of violence in young people's lives, the functions of 'hardness', of homophobia and football, boys' underachievement in school, and the pervasive racialisation of masculine identity construction. Young Masculinities will be invaluable to researchers in psychology, sociology, gender and youth studies, as well as to those devising social policy on boys and young men.
