This book looks at the challenges that young men face when trying to grow up in societies where violence is the norm. Based on field research and interviews in the USA and Brazil, the book describes the young men's struggles in other areas of their lives, such as the effort to stay in school, the multiple challenges of coming of age as men in the face of social exclusion, including finding meaningful employment, their interactions with young women, their sexual behaviour and the implications of this for HIV/AIDS prevention. The text ultimately focuses on 'voices of resistance' - young men who find ways to stay out of violence and to show respect and equality in their relationships, even in settings where male violence and rigid attitudes about manhood are prevalent." ;
