From Boys to Men

As From Boys to Men shows, the process of this socialization reveals a great deal about medieval ideas of what it meant to be a man—as distinguished from a boy, from a woman, and even from a beast.

While the social identity of women in medieval society hinged largely on the ritual of marriage, identity for men was derived from belonging to a particular group. Knights, monks, apprentices, guildsmen all underwent a process of initiation into their unique subcultures. As From Boys to Men shows, the process of this socialization reveals a great deal about medieval ideas of what it meant to be a man—as distinguished from a boy, from a woman, and even from a beast. In an exploration of the creation of adult masculine identities in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, From Boys to Men takes a close look at the roles of men through the lens of three distinct institutions: the university, the aristocratic household and court, and the craft workshop. Ruth Mazo Karras demonstrates that, while men in the later Middle Ages were defined as the opposite of women, this was never the only factor in determining their role in society. A knight proved himself against other men by the successful use of violence as well as by successful control of women. University scholars proved themselves against each other through a violence that was metaphorical and against other men by their Latinity and their use of the tools of logic and rationality. Craft workers proved their manhood by achieving independent householder status. Drawing on sources throughout Northern Europe, including court records and other administrative documents, prescriptive texts such as instructions for dubbing to knighthood, biographies, and imaginative literature, From Boys to Men sheds new light on how young men were trained to take their place in medieval society and the implications of that training for the construction of gender in the Middle Ages. Rescuing maleness from its classification as an ungendered category, From Boys to Men unravels what it meant to be men in a womanless context, revealing the common threads that emerge from the study of young manhood in various disparate institutional settings.

Representing the work of some of the best-known theorists and researchers in masculinities and feminism in South Africa, this highly original work is comprised of a collection of papers presented at the "From Boys to Men" conference held in January 2005. Based on rich ethnographic studies in South Africa and elsewhere in in the continent, this collection addresses the argument that because South African feminine studies are fraught with problems, boys and men should be included in all research and intervention work studying gender equality and transformation. Chapters examine several issues of the African male psyche, such as varying identifiers of manhood, teenage masculinity, paternal responsibility, and the impact of HIV/AIDS in the region.

Acclaimed authors reflect on what it’s like to be gay and young, to be different, and to be aware of that difference from an early age. More than an anthology of coming out stories, From Boys to Men is a stunning collection of essays about what it is like to be gay and young, to be different and be aware of that difference from the earliest of ages. In these memoirs, coming out is less important than coming of age and coming to the realization that young gay people experience the world in ways quite unlike straight boys. Whether it is a fascination with soap opera, an intense sensitivity to their own difference, or an obsession with a certain part of the male anatomy, gay kids—or kids who would eventually identify as gay—have an indefinable but unmistakable gay sensibility. Sometimes the result is funny, sometimes it is harrowing, and often it is deeply moving. Essays by lauded writers like Alexander Chee (Edinburgh), Aaron Hamburger (Faith for Beginners), K. M. Soehnlein (The World of Normal Boys), Trebor Healey (Through It Came Bright Colors), Tom Dolby (The Trouble Boy), David Bahr, and Austin Bunn, are collected along with work from Michael McAllister, Jason Tougaw, Viet Dinh, and the popular blogger, Joe Jervis.

"If you are the parent of a boy . . . this is the book you need . . . insightful, enlightened, practical." —Peggy Orenstein, New York Times bestselling author of Boys & Sex From the dad who created the viral tweet supporting his son wearing nail polish, this essential parenting guide shares 36 parenting tips for battling gender norms, bringing down "man up" culture, and helping sons realize their potential. Our boys are in a crisis. Toxic masculinity and tough guy-ism are on display daily from our leaders, and we see anger, dysfunction, violence, and depression in young men who are suffocated by harmful social codes. Our young sons are told to stop throwing like a girl. They hear phrases like “man up” when they cry. They are told “boys will be boys” when they behave badly. The “Girl Power” movement has encouraged women to be whoever and do whatever they want, but that sentiment is not often extended to boys. Just watch the bullying when boys try ballet, paint their fingernails, or play with a doll. But we can treat this problem—and the power lies in the hands of parents. It's not only possible to raise boys who aren't emotionally stifled and shoved into stereotypical gender boxes; it's vital if we want a generation of men who can express their emotions, respect women, and help nurse society back to a halfway healthy place. We can reframe manhood. From Aaron Gouveia, who gained viral fame after tweeting his support for his son’s painted fingernails (and who knows toxic masculinity very well), learn practical and actionable tips such as: Don’t accept different standards for moms and dads Teach boys that “girl” is not an insult and retire phrases like “boys will be boys” Show boys that expressing their emotions and being physical is a good thing Let boys pursue nontraditional interests and hobbies Talk to boys about consent and privilege Model healthy and respectful relationships for boys to emulate Penned with equal parts humor, biting snark, and lived advice, Raising Boys to Be Good Men is the essential parenting guide for raising sons to realize their potential outside the box. ​

"This book breaks new ground and expands the discourse on masculinities. Connell is an energetic scholar whose eclectic internationalist, sociological, historical, and even psychoanalytic perspectives are important to hear. Probably no other scholar writing on masculinity has such a broad grasp."—Tim Beneke, author of Proving Manhood "Connell has provided a much needed nudge to current scholarship on masculinities by showing the way toward larger global theorization. The Men and the Boys is an outstanding work that will be very well received."—Michael A. Messner, University of Southern California "Bob Connell is arguably the most influential male social scientist writing about masculinities today. And this colection of essays shows him in top form. Connell is a most adept theorist who can synthesize micro and macro, structural and personal, individual bodies and the body social, and, even more ambitiously, the global and—literally!—the microbial. This is a truly important book."— Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America and The Gendered Society "Bob Connell is the most fertile, astute and influential analyst of the myriad and messy meanings of masculinities on the planet. The Men and the Boys boldly extends the scope, depth and power of the foundational work he laid in Masculinities to address the most urgent and difficult questions about global gender and injustice of our time. Dare I label it a heroic work?"—Judith Stacey, author of Brave New Families

From Boys to Men Part One & Part Two is basically an account of some of the experiences which were encountered by the author mainly from the time he was aged twelve right up to his adulthood. There is a deliberate effort by the author, to shade a picture of a metarmorphosis or transformation of his life as part and parcel of his journey from childhood to adulthood, hence, the catch title 'From Boys to Men'. Besides talking about his village life as a Nyachuru primary school going lad until that was shaken by the then Rhodesian 'protected village/Kipi curfew life', the author talked at great length about his life as a Howard secondary school boarder. Unlike Part Two whereby the author, quoting a lot of Bible verses is basically attempts to directly inspire, motivate, teach and share what he views as stubborn faith as well as consencration in the 'Born Again' believer' journey to Heaven, in Part One he uses a different approach. The approach in Part One, although it sounds dominantly autobigraphical, the author, once in blue moon though, also utilised his creative and imaginary writing skills for the sake of emphasis or clarity of the picture of both the actual and possible phenomena in his past, be it dialogues, conversations or whatever incidents. Obviously , a detailed or graphic memories some of the conversations and some of the incidents which transpired during those past decades at times may not have been as fresh as the time they took place. The author tried his best to remember all that he could remember to make his account not only a complete story but also an interesting story to read. At the end of both Part One and Two of the book, the author provides an opportunity for the reader to, just as he himself did at the age of ninteeen, consider placing their faith in Jesus Christ and accept Him as their personal Lord and Saviour too.

Written by a father and real estate executive, From Boys to Men - Mentoring your Son For A Lifetime of Success takes the structure of traditional goal setting to help parents guide their teens to become successful young adults - from middle school and high school to college and beyond.The author took what he learned over decades of corporate leadership trainings and retreats, and created his own annual retreats for him and his son. From age 12 to 18, these one-on-one structured vacations of sorts became the highlight of their father and son summers together. This is the time when valuable lessons were passed down, healthy mindsets were instilled and ambitious goals fitting the child's age were set. Jay Rollins has taken the curriculum he created and placed it in an easy-to-use guide book that parents can walkthrough with their sons to help set goals and create a clear focus for the future they desire. These lessons and conversations can be done in the form of private "retreats" or simply at the dinner table. Worksheets, exercises, and prompts make this reference book unique and actionable.We'll start by helping your son create their definition of what success looks like for them. This definition can be different for each individual.How can we help set up our teen boys to be goal-oriented, successful young men? What steps do we take as parents to help them set achievable goals? Is there a clear way to mentor my son to make good decisions? This workbook will answer those questions and give parents the tools needed to guide their kids towards a lifetime of success.
