With so many of today’s young male population in jail, jobless, and struggling in school, author Lisa Bloom takes a crack at these unsettling trends in her new book, “Swagger: 10 Urgent Rules for Raising Boys in an Era of Failing Schools, Mass Joblessness, and Thug Culture.” Bloom focuses on the cultural forces that hammer young boys into intellectual submission with masculinity described as emotional numbness, violence towards both sexes, and drug abuse being culturally acceptable.
