Summary
"This book focuses on the impact and effects of masculinities on the lives of boys at school. Through interviews with boys from diverse backgrounds, the authors explore the various ways in which boys define and negotiate their masculinities at school. Through looking at the problems and examining the question of what makes a boy a boy, this title offers recommendations and outlines directions for working with boys in schools in the future."--BOOK JACKET
