Journalist Angela Phillips's book takes a look at the socialization of boys - the process which is creating the men of the future. She argues that there are differences between girls and boys - whether due to nature or nurture - which we are failing to address. Feminism has made huge strides towards removing from girls the stigma of being born female, but its cause will not be helped by breeding boys who are ashamed to be male. Drawing widely on recent research on gender and parenthood, as well as her own experiences as both feminist and mother of a son, Angela Phillips presents a critique of present parenthood theory and practice, suggesting new ways to revise the meaning of masculinity, rather than undermining maleness itself.

In this impassioned and insightful book, journalist and parent Angela Phillips draws on recent research, as well as interviews with mothers, fathers and sons, to take a highly original look at the socialisation of boys – the process that is creating the men of the future.
Feminism, she argues, has made huge strides in changing women's lives but our traditional methods of rearing boys are now out of step in society which is rapidly changing both economically and socially. If we fail to address 'The trouble with boys' we are heading for a world in which increasing numbers of young men feel that they have no place – either in the home or at work.
Phillips looks at the effects of families, schools and the peer group on the rearing of boys and suggests new ways to revise the meaning of masculinity – rather than undermining maleness itself.
'A book for all fathers – and mothers too.'
'Stops us in our tracks and reminds us how precious a position is that of parenthood.'
'Phillips turns her feminist eyes on the experiences boys face in their journey toward masculinity. It is at times a heartbreaking account of what our contemporary sense of being a man entails.'
