This is a "must read"  May 1, 2011
by


Finally, a truthful, revealing and accurate analysis of an entire generation of failures and bozos. Dr. Kimmel, in this textbook, provides a troubling but important analysis of what is happening with young men today. Guyland is filled with many of the most toxic elements of our culture: violence, hazing, drinking, drugs, pornography, emotionally detached intimacy, sexual harassment, and degradation of women. It also provides stories of hope and bravery of individuals and institutions that have sought to address the problems associated with guyland. I highly recommend this cheap textbook.






Guyland : The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The passage from adolescence to adulthood was once clear. Today, growing up has become more complex and confusing, as young men drift casually through college and beyond—hanging out, partying, playing with tech toys, watching sports. But beneath the appearance of a simple extended boyhood, a more dangerous social world has developed, far away from the traditional signposts and cultural signals that once helped boys navigate their way to manhood—a territory Michael Kimmel has identified as "Guyland."

In mapping the troubling social world where men are now made, Kimmel offers a view into the minds and times of America's sons, brothers, and boyfriends, and he works toward redefining what it means to be a man today—and tomorrow. Only by understanding this world and this life stage can we enable young men to chart their own paths, stay true to themselves, and emerge safely from Guyland as responsible and fully formed male adults.

“Just as Reviving Ophelia introduced readers to the culture of teenage girls, Guyland takes us to the land of young men.” -Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of Reviving Ophelia

Guyland takes up where Real Boys left off...a must-read for parents, teachers, coaches, young women who are so confused by the guys in their midst-and for guys themselves who yearn to break free of unwritten rules that leave them half a man, rather than a whole person.” -William Pollack, author of Real Boys

“Engaging...provocative....The book raises important questions....A useful, highly readable overview of an important social phenomenon.” -Kirkus Reviews

“A deft exploration grounded in research....Kimmel offers a highly practical guide to male youth.” -Publishers Weekly
