About this title


The AIDS epidemic has afflicted Sub-Saharan Africa disproportionately, affecting every aspect of culture and society. In this intimate, longitudinal study Anthony Simpson analyzes the lives of a group of men who studied together at a Catholic mission school in Zambia and explores how the risk of HIV infection has shaped sexual practices. Boys to Men in the Shadow of AIDS reveals the dangerous fragility of masculinity in many men’s attempts to act out the ideal of the “real man.”  Simpson looks at their search for meaning, and their response to both prevention and HIV testing campaigns, to suggest how to refigure masculinity and redesign gender relationships.

About the Author:

Anthony Simpson teaches social anthropology at the University of Manchester. He is the author of ‘Half-London’ in Zambia: Contested Identities in a Catholic Mission School and has published articles on postcolonial education, Christian missions, and masculinities and HIV/AIDS in Zambia.
