What were the achievements of the angry writers who emerged in the fifties? Historically, they gave birth to the satire movement of the 1960s-Beyond the Fringe, That Was the Week that Was and Private Eye. Their satire and irreverence aroused enthusiasm in man, and a new anti-Establishment mood developed from Look Back in Anger and The Outsider. All literary movements acquire enemies, but the Angry Young Men of the 1950s accumulated more than most. Why? Wilson takes us on a journey back to this era, and reveals fascinating and sometimes disturbing stories from the Greats, including John Osborne, Kingsley Amis, Kenneth Tynan and John Braine-to name but a few. At all events, the story of that period makes a marvellously lively tale which, most importantly, was recorded by someone who was actually there.

This original study is the first major critical appraisal of Ireland’s post-colonial experience in relation to that of other emergent nations. The parallels between Ireland, India, Latin America, Africa and Europe establish bridges in literary and musical contexts which offer a unique insight into independence and freedom, and the ways in which they are articulated by emergent nations. They explore the master-servant relationship, the functions of narrative, and the concepts of nationalism, map-making, exile, schizophrenia, hybridity, magical realism and disillusion. The author offers many incisive answers to the question: What happens to an emerging nation after it has emerged?

From the new and interesting viewpoint of the milieu of the 1930s and the eras of English literary and political history which preceded and followed that decade, Elton Smith examines the special signifi­cance of the works of C. Day-Lewis, Stephen Spender, Louis MacNeice, and W. H. Auden. In his view the 1930s were for the angry young men represented by these four poets a kind of bridge between the disillusionment following the French Revolution and the despair engendered by the Moscow-Berlin nonaggression pact at the end of the decade. What these four poets had in common, in addition to their poetic hopes for a new era, was a Socialist allegiance, two of them as party members, the other two intellectually or emotionally drawn to so­cialism as the cure for the malaise from which England suffered. As Smith bril­liantly shows, the poets’ socialistic pre­scriptions were ineffective because of their growing realization of the political expediency of the Communist Party, and their voices became muted.

"The majority of difficult, troubled, criminal, and even violent young men can lead whole and productive lives when given the right opportunities and leadership." Many of us feel disturbed by the destructive behavior of so many American boys today. Their rates of substance abuse, suicide, assault, gun possession, and homicide exceed, by far, those of boys in every other industrialized nation. But what can we do? Weaving together his life experiences, research, and clinical observations, former "bad boy" Aaron Kipnis examines the lives of boys at risk and offers clear and practical suggestions for how we all can help troubled boys become good men. Kipnis, a nationally respected educator and consultant in clinical psychology, was first arrested at the age of eleven. He spent most of the next seven years living in juvenile institutions or on the streets. Rather than surrendering to this downward spiral, he changed course, ultimately devoting his professional energies to affected boys and young men. In a compelling personal narrative, the author tells of his own transformational journey from runaway, street hustler, and jailed juvenile, to a Ph.D. in clinical psychology devoted to mentoring, counseling, and leading young men. This book tells parents exactly what they need to know if their son is having trouble socially or emotionally, in school, or with drugs or gangs. It offers educators insights into how to work with disruptive boys and shows counselors and community youth leaders how to build trust and bring about change with troubled youth. For every destructive or violent act that the author experienced, he offers an antidote— based on inside knowledge. Angry Young Menoffers compelling strategies for everyone concerned about how we can save our young men. Helping "Bad Boys" Become Good Men Writing from personal and professional experience, Aaron Kipnis shares both the riveting story of his own troubled youth-and how he turned himself around-and the successful approaches he has used to help "bad boys" become good men. Angry Young Men offers specific, practical advice for parents, teachers, counselors, community leaders, and justice professionals— everyone who wants to help at-risk boys become strong, productive, caring, and compassionate men. "Angry Young Men is an extremely important book that is especially timely now during our current epidemic of violence by and against boys and young men . . . Aaron Kipnis has seen deeply, not only into the souls of troubled boys and adolescents, but also into those aspects of the spirit of our culture and our epoch that have turned an unprecedentedly large proportion of our boys and young men into perpetrators and victims of violence."— From the Foreword by Dr. James Gilligan, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "One of the most important books written in the last decade."— Robert Bly, author of Iron John and The Sibling Society "With stories of the triumph of human courage against insurmountable odds, Aaron Kipnis clearly demonstrates that redemption, human dignity, and transformation are possible among the most troubled of our youth."— Dr. Robert E. Roberts, executive director Project Return, Tulane University Medical Center "With unique passion and insight, Aaron Kipnis shatters the myths about troubled young men in our society. A compassionate look atat-risk youth that compels each one of us into action."— Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys and A Fine Young Man "A compelling work that deeply moves and educates you as it seeks to build an informed and inspired advocacy for at-risk boys and young men. Kipnis arms us with healing alternatives that are within our reach. Essential reading."— Dr. Mary Watkins, clinical psychologist and author of Waking Dreams and Invisible Guests
