Details: Product Description Meet 30 positive male role models from throughout history. From activists like Mahatma Gandhi and Frederick Douglass to creative innovators like Prince and David Hockney, these men have fought conventional stereotypes to prove that modern-day masculinity can be defined freely. Instead of a single model of how a boy can grow into a man, this book offers 30 stories of people whose lives demonstrate that there are endless possibilities—that boys and men can do and be so much more than what we think of when we say things like “boys will be boys.” Discover a world of inspirational change-makers, teachers, peacemakers, artists, scientists, and more who have defied the expectations, care deeply about others, stand up for what is right, and express themselves in creative and exciting ways. Inspiring a new generation of boys: David Hockney; Muhammad Ali; Nelson Mandela; Prince; Richard Loving; César Chávez; Thurgood Marshall; John Muir; Lebron James; Frederick Douglass; Patricio Manuel; Hayao Miyazaki; Oscar Wilde; Ta-Nehisi Coates; Ezra Jack Keats; Freddie Mercury; Grandmaster Flash; Luther Christman; Mahatma Gandhi; Bruce Lee; Carl Sagan; George Washington Carver; Jaime Escalante; Carlos Acosta; Bayard Rustin; Edward Enninful; John Dewey; Alfred Nobel; Kit Yan; and W.E.B. Du Bois. From School Library Journal Gr 3 Up—Featuring 30 profiles of men who have promoted peace, championed justice, and defied societal expectations, this collective biography sets out to show that "there is no one way to be a man." Each life story features a colorful full-page illustration that represents the subject and also depicts significant elements of their life and legacy. A featured quote encapsulates each subject's personal philosophy or life mission. The profiles include several well-known and widely covered individuals like Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Frederick Douglass, and LeBron James, but also chronicle the importance of the lives of the lesser known such as Richard Loving, Ezra Jack Keats, John Dewey, and Carlos Acosta. While these biographies are necessarily brief and pitched in language and tone to an upper elementary or early middle school audience, there are a few where important controversial details are glossed over and the balance of a particular profile tips from simple to simplistic. For example, in Mandela's profile, there is a reference to his co-creation of an anti-apartheid organization that "used violence to fight against racial inequality." However, it fails to explain his role in the African National Congress and other groups that used violence as a protest tactic. With no source notes nor suggestions for further research, the book offers no help to readers who might be inclined to dig deeper. VERDICT This biographical encyclopedia provides much-needed insight into lives of those who redefined men's roles. Recommended for elementary and middle school library collections.—Kelly Kingrey-Edwards, Blinn Junior College, Brenham, TX Review "This volume puts a positive spin on adage “boys will be boys” by introducing 30 male public figures whose talents and accomplishments have earned them notoriety and admiration. The subjects—among them Ta-Nehisi Coates, Nelson Mandela, and Freddie Mercury—represent a broad spectrum of professions, eras, and backgrounds. Rohlmann creates portraits of each subject in a bold graphic style reminiscent of artful posters. Writing in a casual tone with candid detail, Leek includes a full page of biographical information for each individual (though the order in which the figures are presented feels haphazard). In an era when toxic masculinity is at the forefront of public discourse, this text provides a more expansive view of what people can aspire to be." - Publishers Weekly About the Author Dr Cliff Leek is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Northern Colorado and President of the American Men's Studies Association.
