It identifies the psychosocial, physical and mental health challenges faced by African American men. It lays out the purpose of the book, which is to provide readers with theoretical and conceptual insights supported by empirical data on the African American male experience in dimensions heretofore only addressed in the limited scope of papers, seminar discussions, and workshops. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
