"Each entry includes a list of suggested readings that appear to be both timely and to the point. In addition, at the end of volume 2 there is a 75-page bibliography that would make the set worth its price. . . . Boyhood in America serves as a good introduction to an emerging area of study and is recommended for high school, public, and academic libraries." - Booklist
"This work is a worthy contribution to the field of men's studies. . . . The set's information and perspective are unique and make this work valuable for public libraries and gender studies collections in secondary and college level libraries." - Library Journal
"Readers will find that one of the main benefits of this set is the historical perspective given by these articles . . . useful work that provides an overview of a somewhat neglected subject and offers bibliographic references to more specific aspects of each topic. Boyhood in America: An Encyclopedia is one of those sets that could equally be at home in circulating collections, particularly in academic and larger public libraries." - Against the Grain
