Dissoziales und delinquentes Verhalten bei Jugendlichen ist durch bekannte deutliche Geschlechterunterschiede in Art und Häufigkeit, die sich ins Erwachsenenalter fortsetzen, geprägt. In den letzten Jahren war zwar eine Zunahme delinquenten Verhaltens bei Mädchen zu verzeichnen, es bleibt jedoch abzuwarten, welche Bedeutung dieses Phänomen zukünftig haben wird. Warum sind männliche Jugendliche erheblich häufiger delinquent als weibliche? Die Beiträge dieses Bandes stellen mögliche Ursachen, den unterschiedlichen Verlauf, die verschiedenen Folgen sowie die Behandlungsmöglichkeiten für die weiblichen oder männlichen Jugendlichen dar. Zwei Aspekte treten in den Vordergrund: - Die schon im frühen Kindesalter relevanten neurobiologischen Ursachen delinquenten Verhaltens betreffen überwiegend männliche Jugendliche. - Die sozialen Bedingungen dissozialer Entwicklung haben mehr Auswirkungen auf die Sozialisation bei männlicher Delinquenz; bei weiblichen Jugendlichen gibt es im sozialen Umfeld während der gesamten Entwicklung deutlich mehr Unterstützung für eine sozial unauffällige Entwicklung. Delinquenz bei weiblichen Jugendlichen wird häufiger als ein Ausdruck psychischer Störungen bewertet. Obwohl kein kausaler Faktor vorliegt, trägt dies auch dazu bei, dass Mädchen und junge Frauen in den Kriminalstatistiken weniger auftreten. Dieser Band analysiert die Geschlechterdifferenzen delinquenten Verhaltens angemessen und ist eine Pflichtlektüre für alle Experten und Interessierten, die im Bereich Jugenddelinquenz tätig sind. mit Beiträgen von: Susan Bailey, Simone L.

This unforgettable memoir, by one of our most gifted writers, introduces us to the young Toby Wolff, by turns tough and vulnerable, crafty and bumbling, and ultimately winning. Separated by divorce from his father and brother, Toby and his mother are constantly on the move, yet they develop an extraordinarily close, almost telepathic relationship. As Toby fights for identity and self-respect against the unrelenting hostility of a new stepfather, his experiences are at once poignant and comical, and Wolff does a masterful job of re-creating the frustrations and cruelties of adolescence. His various schemes - running away to Alaska, forging checks, and stealing cars - lead eventually to an act of outrageous self-invention that releases him into a new world of possibility.

The #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36” For readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Where the Boys are

Cuba, Cold War America and the Making of a New Left

Author: Van Gosse

Publisher: Verso

The ignominious failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961 marked the culmination of a curious episode at the height of the Cold War. At the end of the fifties, restless and rebellious youth, avant-garde North American intellectuals, old leftists, and even older liberals found inspiration in the images and achievements of Fidel Castro's revolutionary guerrillas. Fidelismo swept across the US, as young North Americans sought to join the 26th of July Movement in the Sierra Maestra. Drawing equally on cultural and political materials, from James Dean and Desi Arnaz to C. Wright Mills and Studies on the Left, Gosse explains how the peculiar conjuncture of 1950s America produced the first great Third World solidarity movement, the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, which became a locus for the New Left emerging from the ashes of Kennedy's New Frontier. Where the Boys Are captures the strange essence of that much-abused decade, the 1950s, at once demonstrating the perfidy of Cold War American liberal opinion towards Cuba and its revolution while explaining why Fidel and his compa�eros made such appealing idols for the young, the restless, and the politically adventurous.

In recent years, questions about men and boys have aroused remarkable media interest, public concern and controversy. Across the world, health services are noticing the relevance of men’s gender to problems as diverse as road accidents, diet and sexually transmitted disease. Teachers are increasingly preoccupied with the poor educational performance of boys, and criminologists have begun to explore why men and boys continue to dominate the crime statistics. In this timely new volume, one of the world’s leading authorities on masculinity helps us to understand these developments, and make sense of the multiplying issues about men and boys. Five years on from the publication of the seminal study Masculinities, this book reflects on the growing social scientific research in this area. Connell assesses its strengths and weaknesses and explores its implications for contemporary problems from boys’ education and men’s health to international peacemaking. Written in a lively and accessible way, this book will be essential reading for all students of sociology, politics and gender studies, as well as anyone interested in the future of gender relations.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little. For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.
