These reference works focus on the life and history of American boyhood through the centuries. The books cover education, ethnicity, sports, work, religion, health issues, and more. Expert contributors offer perspectives from a myriad of disciplines, including history, cultural studies, media studies, education, literature, sociology, psychology and anthropology.

The books: chronicle boys' activities, hobbies, and intense interests throughout history, from penny arcades to video games, fishing to drag racing; feature entries on the inspirational boyhoods of Theodore Roosevelt, Frederick Douglass, Ralph Waldo Emerson and others, and discusses how each man's upbringing was representative of the experiences of his generation and social milieu; analyze the changing roles and relationships of boys as family members, wage earners, students and among peers; and address historical and contemporary cases of bullying, gang involvement, drug use and suicide.
