Black Swans : The Crime of Boys
Must we accept the fact that young males commit most of the crime in society as a natural pattern or is it something else? Drawing on her years of experience as a teacher, counselor, and guardian, Runcie provides an invaluable, thoughtful, and cogent analysis of a group of adolescent males at critical junctures in their development. Further, she demonstrates that society's need to divide human traits into male and female gender roles often denies both sexes, but boys in particular, the ability to enjoy the full range of human emotion. As a result, these black swans use outward anger and violence to mask their vulnerable and sensitive inner self.
