About this title:

Synopsis:

Violence. Drugs. Pregnancy. Suicide. Are our nation's teenagers out of control? Mike Males provides a different picture--how politicians, private interests, and the media unfairly scapegoat adolescents for America's problems. Among the myths he explodes:

Myth: Drugs, guns, gangsta rap, TV violence and "innate" youth savagery are causing crime and mayhem.

He serves on the California Wellness Foundation Adolescent Health Advisory Board, and has written extensively on youth and social issues in publications such as The New York Times, The Lancet, Phi Delta Kappan and In These Times.
