    schema:reviewBody ""Nine Lives, written by one of the most respected authorities on the subject of gender and crime, provides an account of the connection among adolescent masculinities, the body, peer abuse in schools, and violence. Drawing on penetrating life-history interviews of nine white working-class teenage boys, James W. Messerschmidt unravels some of the mysteries of teenage violence. The book is a comparative analysis of male sex offenders, assaultive offenders, and nonviolent boys, and has implications for understanding and preventing such national tragedies as the recent school shootings in the United States." "In this study, Messerschmidt literally walks in the shoes of these boys - talks to them in-depth about their experiences - and learns what they actually did and experienced in their lives that resulted in sexual or assaultive violence or nonviolence."--Jacket." ;
