Why Young Men: The Dangerous Allure of Violent Movements and What We Can Do About Them

Author(s): Jamil Jivani

Politics and Society

Using his own story as a jumping off point, Jivani discusses why it's so often young men who fall into patterns of violence and extremism, and how we can bring change to this ever increasing global problem. Why Young Men is not just a powerful and beautifully written non-fiction narrative book, it's a book of ideas that pursues a positive path and offers a counterintuitive, often provocative argument for a sea change in the way we look at young men, and for how they see themselves. Jamil focuses on the particular challenges of emotional development, incarceration, finishing school, engaging in the economy, violence and the tendency of young men to gravitate to extreme groups. "Why Young Men is a brilliant exploration of race, class, hopelessness, and why all too many young men turn to radicalization and violence. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about solving one of the most important problems of our day." Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
