Example text

Crucially, this is a masculinity accomplished, above all, in ways which are mediated by the class location of the youth in question. Class and criminality are thus rendered inseparable at the very moment a notion of individual masculine crisis – that ever-present struggle to ‘be masculine’ – is seen as resulting from the structural position of the male youth in question. Third, and implicit in this correlation between (fragile) masculinity, lack of (or limited) employment opportunity and crime/delinquency, has been a (less explored) presumed dissociation of young men from the domain of the familial, alongside, revealingly, a simultaneous analytic privileging of relationships between men.
