Uncertain Masculinities: Youth, Ethnicity and Class in Contemporary Britain Hardcover - 2000 - 1st Edition

by Mike O'Donnell; Sue Sharpe


From the publisher

In this era of rapid and unsettling change, boys now more than ever face difficulties in establishing their self-image and status. In this original and challenging study Mike O'Donnell and Sue Sharpe explore how teenage boys from white, African-Caribbean and Asian backgrounds negotiate contemporary uncertainties to construct their gender identities. Drawing theoretical insights about how class, race and ethnicity critically affect the formulation of masculinities throughout, the authors examine: * the discrepancies between boys and girls' attitudes and expectations
* the split between boys' formal acceptance of politically correct ideas and their informal behaviour amongst the peer group
* boys' leisure pursuits including involvement in illegal activities and their selective identification with global youth culture. Uncertain Masculinities is a fascinating account of the complexity of contemporary boys' identities and will be of use to students of the sociology of youth and of gender studies.

First line

This chapter discusses the contribution of the education system and the peer group to the formation of boys' masculinities.
