              WHY YOUNG MEN is a book of ideas that offers a counterintuitive, often provocative argument for a sea change in the way we look at young men, and for how they see themselves. The day after the 2015 Paris terror attacks, Jamil Jivani opened the newspaper to find that the men respo...nsible were familiar to him. He didn't know them, but the communities they grew up in and the challenges they faced mirrored his own life. So why are young men vulnerable to falling outside the reach of mainstream morals? Jivani has discovered remarkable similarities between young men who turn to violence in serach of belonging and brotherhood. Men who join violent groups-gangs, terror cells, extremist networks-as well as isolated and self-destructive young men coping with addiction or contemplating suicide. Jivani's activism is rooted in his own journey from teenager considering a life of crime to lawyer and powerful speaker for the disenfranchised. Having grown up with a largely absent father in a mostly immigrant neighbourhood, he knows what it is to watch a man's future influenced by gangster culture or radical ideologies associated with Islam. One thing is certain: violent ideologies thrive when enough people believe that differences of race, religion, class or neighbourhood are irreconcilable.

              Across the world, we see an explosion of unpredictable violence committed by alienated young men. Youth activist Jamil Jivani recounts his experiences working with angry and alienated young men throughout North America and the Middle East, drawing striking parallels between ISIS ...recruits, gangbangers, and Neo-Nazis in the West. Having narrowly escaping a descent into crime and gang violence in his native Toronto, Jivani has devoted his life to helping other at-risk youths avoid this fate in cities across North America. After the Paris terrorist attacks of 2016, he traveled to Europe and the Middle East to assist Muslim community outreach groups focused on deterring ISIS recruitment. Why Young Men is the story of Jivani's education as an activist on the front lines of one of today's most dangerous and intractable problems: the exploding violence among angry young men all over the world. Jivani relates his personal story and describes his entrance into the community outreach movement, his work with disenfranchised people of color in North America and at-risk youth in the Middle East and Africa, and his experiences with the white working class. The reader learns along with him as he profiles a diverse array of young men and interviews those who are trying to help them, drawing parallels between these groups, refuting the popular belief that they are radically different from each other, and offering concrete steps toward countering this global trend.
