Drawing upon data collected over an 18 year period with over 1000 boys, this book provides a revealing insight into the lives and development of young men. Examining the particular pressures that impact upon young men such as masculinity, marginalisation, male youth subculture and what are acceptable and unacceptable levels of violence, this book present the voices and experiences of men from a range of community backgrounds and cultural traditions in Northern Ireland to enable us to better understand their issues, concerns and behaviour. Providing critical reflections on violence, masculinity, learning and education, Boys, Young Men and Violence presents a clear agenda for future research, practice and policy and will be a vital resource for scholars in Sociology, Criminology and Gender studies as well as those working with boys and young men.
