Spirituality and the transition to manhood

thesis
posted on 2006-01-01, 00:00 authored by Andrew P. (Andrew Philip) Smith
This thesis explores experiences of transitioning to manhood of a group of New Zealand men, focussing on aspects of spirituality. Participants describe perceptions of masculinity that digress from cultural norms, question the trend to advocate specific 'rites-of-passage', and view faith communities as potentially significant but often irrelevant in practice.
