Rating: 0 vote(s).


As boys become men, pressure to fit into set images of masculinity can be overwhelming. And stereotypes about what makes a man a man can make the early stages of puberty -- the beginning of physical, emotional, and sexual maturity -- all the more confusing. This volume looks at issues relating to gender identity and how boys can deal with the conflicts that arise when boys fit -- or do not fit -- the masculinity mould.

"There is a timely section on stereotypes in the media, especially television, video games and the internet. Recommended."
