From the Publisher"Way and Judy Chu have put together an excellent book on explorations into the lives of adolescent boys. The essays are rich in diversity, not only in the populations of boys studied, but also in research methodology and theoretical perspective."
"Empirical research on the lives and behavior of adolescent boys from a variety of ethnic and class backgrounds."
"Brings together a coherent and consistent body of literature on a topic that is often relegated to a single chapter or afterthought in similar books and edited volumes....Adolescent Boys challenges the limited and often skewed male images perpetuated by the media, superordinant male groupings, and Western men by giving voice to adolexcent boys growing up in diverse cultures of boyhood."
-Harvard Educational Review,
"The volume explores the experiences of boys who have been excluded from previous developmental research and also challenges the existing stereotypes about boys."
