Abstract:

Boys in our society are greatly at risk. Yet the best-known studies and the academic experts say that it's the girls who are suffering from a decline in self-esteem, who need extra help in school and elsewhere in a society that favors boys. The problem with boys, they say, is that they are boys. We need to change their nature, to make them more like girls. But Christina Hoff Sommers says these arguments don't hold up to scrutiny. In this book, Sommers analyzes the work of leading academic experts Carol Gilligan and William Pollack and finds it lacking in scientific rigor. There is no girl crisis, she says. Boys do need help--but not the sort they've been getting. They need love, discipline, respect, and moral guidance. They desperately need understanding. But they do not need to be rescued from masculinity.
