Summary Illuminates the potency of peer culture in shaping boys' understandings of masculinity along essentialist lines - as physical dominance, violence and risk. The thesis demonstrates how the "boys will be boys" philosophy and the pervasive belief in the innocence of small children blinds early childhood educators to the destructive force of this form of masculinity.
