Defending Boyhood: How Building Forts, Reading Stories, Playing Ball, and Praying to God Can Change the World

Anthony Esolen
TAN Books, 212 pages

 

 

“Boys will be boys” is an expression sometimes used to excuse bad behavior, but Anthony Esolen has something else in mind here: at the risk of sounding misogynistic and politically incorrect, he proposes that boys need to be in the business of doing what boys are supposed to do – becoming real men, the guardians and protectors of all that is good and true — and that parents should raise and form their sons accordingly. His references to history and literature bear out his point expertly. Esolen’s voice of reason seeks to dispel confusion and restore the “tranquility of order” in malefemale relationships.
