Product Details


“Insightful… fascinating, particularly her extensive interviews with boys of color… much food for thought.” —Publishers Weekly

“A thoughtful, well-informed look at contemporary boy culture and its many inherent problems.” —Kikus

“Rebels With a Cause
is a key intervention – as a developmental psychologist of immense experience, Niobe Way is uniquely positioned to unravel the very notions of (masculine) development that bind our society as a whole into structures of violence, exclusion, and isolation; in the often painful testimony of boys and teenagers, she also finds a compass to show us the way home.” —David Wengrow, New York Times bestselling author of The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity

“Reading Niobe Way’s epic new book is one of those experiences that forever changes your understanding of the world you live in. In the mirror it holds up to society and ourselves, we see an urgent, dire need for greater connection, care, and most of all curiosity. The implications of her research create possibilities for dramatic transformation of how we live and how we raise and educate generations to come. Way combines rigorous reserach with compelling personal stories with inspiring examples of trajectory-changing projects and programs. This is a must-read for anyone who cares about our children, our society, and our future.” —Jeff Wetzler, author of Ask: Tap Into the Hidden Wisdom of People Around You

“This is a book for everyone invested in education and children—meaning everyone who cares about the future.” —Carol Gilligan, author of In a Human Voice

“Rebels with a Cause
may just be the book we need to save America from itself. —Lisa Arrastia, founding director of The Ed Factory and Associate Professor of Education, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts

“Through brilliant storytelling that includes personal and professional narratives, Professor Way presents a four-part narrative that sets the foundation for understanding the foundations of some of today’s biggest challenges to offering solutions to these challenges.” —Michael Cunningham, Professor of Psychology & Africana Studies and Associate Provost for Graduate Studies and Research at Tulane University

Rebels with a Cause is magnificent! Full of thick stories and deep insights — all brilliantly expressed! Way builds beautifully on Carol Gilligan’s work to reveal profound truths about the human condition and highlight a path forward that bypasses moral injury and leads to the meaningful connections we need — individually and collectively — to heal and thrive.” —Judy Chu, author of When Boys Become Boys
