This volume examines special issues associated with providing services and guidance to African American men. Although this group of men is like any other in its struggle with its social and economic problems, African American men experience a higher rate of murder, imprisonment, unemployment and racism. The contributors to this book provide a broad, interdisciplinary view of the possible solutions to the different problems facing African American men.
