Summary "Boys will be boys," the saying goes--but what does that actually mean? Anthropologist Gutmann argues that predatory male behavior is in no way inevitable. Men behave the way they do because culture permits it, not because biology demands it. To prove this, he embarks on a global investigation of masculinity.
