A powerful examination of the way boys are raised in today's society Violence has always been the way of human life, and most acts of violence are committed by men. But what causes them to embrace violence - in warfare, in criminal acts, in the home? Is it encouraged by parents, or is it innate? How can we begin to raise sons whose sense of self-worth will not be dependent on an atavistic concept of masculinity, and what concrete changes must we make in our child-rearing and socialization process in order to raise sons who embrace the positive masculine characteristics of initiative, independence and courage? This book addresses these questions and comes up with answers.
