Rethinking Youth

Rethinking Youth

December 1996 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Young people grow up in varied circumstances with different priorities and perspectives. While youth does not exist as a single group we need to understand what is happening in young people's lives. Rethinking Youth challenges the conventional wisdoms surrounding the position and opportunities of young people today and provides a systematic overview of the major perspectives in youth studies.
The Concept of Youth
Youth and Economy
Youth Development
Youth Subcultures
Youth Transitions
Youth Marginalization

Useful, provocative and refreshingly confrontational of the conventions and received wisdoms that are often promoted in relation to young people.

This book will be an essential element in the reading list. It will enable students to get a thorough grounding in the issue of 'youth'.

A fantastic book which would support trainee youth work students with their studies and beyond. Some really interesting discussions and current debates.
