WHY YOUNG MEN The Dangerous Allure of Violent Movements and What We Can Do About It

by | Read by JD Jackson

Contemporary Culture • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Jivani shares his experiences and observations after years of working with problematic and violent youth across the world--but it is JD Jackson's narration, with his deep and raspy voice, that gives those insights much more gravitas than a reader might glean from the page. Using different examples of cases on which he worked, as well as those he witnessed from afar, Jivani shows how the absence of opportunity, cultural context, and alienation work to drive young men toward violence throughout the world. He also identifies useful ways to help them. Jackson is especially effective in capturing Jivani's exasperation at the failure of U.S. culture, which too often slips into ideological standoffs between the left and the right, offering few solutions but plenty of finger-pointing.
