Anthony Esolen writes in defense of boys and an experience of boyhood that is on the wane, if not extinguished, in many quarters of the modern world. He masterfully illuminates the threats our precious sons face from the purveyors and promoters of political correctness, too often hiding in plain sight. And he tackles head-on the misguided and ultimately doomed–though not before it has done much mischief–project of blurring the distinctions between boys and girls. In DEFENDING BOYHOOD Esolen prescribes a return to sanity in an insane world. Enter into the world of boyhood with him, and he just might change you and the lives of the boys you love. Hardcover.
