If boys get shipwrecked on an island in the middle of nowhere and have to do their best to survive, how would they behave?

Scottish novelist R.M. Ballantyne believed they would turn to God for help and pray regularly, that they would cooperate to ensure group survival. His 1858 tale of Ralph, Jack and Peterkin was immensely popular and has never been out of print. Modern novelist William Golding read The Coral Island and disagreed with the idea that stranded boys would all get along so harmoniously. In 1954 his Lord of the Flies was published, depicting Ralph, Jack and Piggy (amongst others) rapidly growing violent, selfish and bestial, losing any sense of co-operation or social order.

Which is the right view of masculinity and the wielding of male power? This talk discusses two authors and their contrasting views of what young men are capable of.
