Reviews

“In Boys, Young Men, and Violence, Ken Harland and Sam McCready provides the results of an 18-year study that focused on the development of adolescent boys and young men ranging in ages from eleven to twenty-three. … They provide data and ideas that are particularly needed by educators, professionals, officials, and researchers worldwide, to better respond to at-risk adolescent boys and young men who struggle with violence on an everyday basis.” (Michael R. Shew, Journal of Youth and Adolescence, Vol. 45, 2016)
