Summary 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 will be of profound 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.[publisher]
